Other experts on the panel will include Mimi Guarneri, M.D., founder and president of The Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine, and Dale Bredesen, M.D., a neurodegenerative disease expert and founding president of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging. Robert Bonakdar, M.D., of the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine, will moderate the panel. After the discussion, attendees may attend a book-signing event, where they can meet each of the panelists.
