Dr. Sangeeta Oza
Dr. Oza is a traditionally trained western medicine physician. Throughout her 30+ year career, she realized that although western medicine has an important role to play, integrating lifestyle medicine is just as important, if not more and therefore, founded Mindful Medicine.
She is passionate about empowering individuals with education to understand that they have the power to improve their own health, changing the way they eat, think and live.
Dr. Oza will be hosting the walk and talk and conducting interactive discussions over the course of the retreat.
