Mindfulness Lecture Set for Sept. 15

Published September 13, 2016

Curious about mindfulness--but not sure where to start?

Mindfulness is a scientifically proven method that is recommended for the treatment of various conditions including those related to anxiety.  Mindfulness can simply be described as choosing and learning to control our focus and attention. These methods have been clinically proven to improve attention, alleviate stress, anxiety, panic, depression, and chronic pain.

In the next installment of Burke's Senior Health Series—a bi-monthly lecture series on geared specifically for  seniors—Heidi Spitz, Psy.D., Director of Outpatient Neuropsychology, will teach you hands-on practical skills to deal more effectively with the  normal ‘ups and downs’ that you face in your daily life.

Dr. Spitz has been practicing psychology for over 25 years. She has trained and worked in leading hospitals in New York City, including Rusk Rehabilitation at New York University Langone Medical Center, New York Presbyterian (Columbia University and Weill Cornell Medical Centers), Mount Sinai, Bellevue and Lenox Hill. She is committed to helping individuals improve their cognitive and emotional functions either individually or in group settings.

The presentation will take place in the Rosedale Room of the Billings Building (#4) on Burke's main campus in White Plains.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., where a light breakfast will be served. The presentation begins at 9 a.m.

Seating is limited so please reserve your spot by emailing Julia Moran at or calling (914) 597-2871 by Sept. 14.
