This one-day conference is designed for researchers, scholars, physicians, students and other health care professionals with an interest in mindfulness and contemplative studies. By attending this conference, the participant will gain knowledge of the role of these philosophies and practices in understanding integrative oncology interventions, conscious aging, death and dying, and self-transcendence. The therapeutic potentials of yoga, research of contemplative practices in palliative care and concepts of self-transcendence within various spiritual traditions will be explored. Participants will hear keynote speaker, Dr. Linda Carlson on mindfulness based interventions for cancer patients and survivors and a talk from bhikkhu Ajahn Viradhammo on transcendence and wellbeing.

CNMD Annual Research Day
The CNMD is hosting the 5th Ottawa International Conference on Neuromuscular Disease and Biology in October 2019. After four previous successful neuromuscular disease conferences in Ottawa, the 2019 conference promises to offer an outstanding program emphasizing recent breakthroughs in basic and translational research and clinical discoveries in neuromuscular disease.
The Conference is structured for both basic researchers and clinicians and will feature internationally-recognized invited speakers highlighting advances in all aspects of NMD research, including novel techniques to diagnose NMD, biology of disease pathogenesis, expanding clinical phenotypes, basic muscle and stem cell biology, and promising therapies to treat these devastating disorders. As in past years, trainees are encouraged to attend and participate – selected abstracts will be featured for platform presentation during the scientific sessions, and all posters are eligible for top poster awards.
