Date & Time

May 21 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Event Types :
Sign up for part 1 of a three-part Museum of Happiness series about field of neuroimmunology.

We all know that stress contributes to disease and worse health outcomes; so why can’t we take advantage of this phenomenon and use our thoughts and emotions to help ourselves more?

In this workshop, you’ll learn how the field of neuroimmunology has identified biological and chemical pathways connecting emotional experiences into physical manifestations including certain autoimmune disorders.

You’ll also learn interventions designed from these findings, to help individuals take advantage of their mind/body connection for achieving their health goals.

You will have the opportunity to create your own “Thought Boss” ideation for using this phenomena to help you achieve your goals.  You’ll leave with a completed new worksheet or applying this technique to your daily life.

Program note: This is part 1 of a three-part Museum of Happiness series. You are welcome to join us for one, two or all three sessions. The other workshops include:

How to Inspire More Happiness at Work, June 4, 6 – 7 PM

10 Guidelines to Experience More Happiness This Summer, June 25, 1 – 2 PM

This program is presented by Rachel Scheinberg and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.

About the Presenter:  

Rachel Scheinberg is a dynamic Keynote Speaker who uses her 25 years of work in healthcare technology to help others utilize the deepest corners of their brain to accomplish more.  Rachel’s research and work has brought the importance of the Mind-Body Connection into mainstream medicine.

Rachel was recruited to the nation’s largest health insurance company, UnitedHealthcare, to build new behavioral health programs that improved access and lowered costs for patients to get additional mental health resources and support. The business cases and medical cost offset these programs demonstrated led to the whole industry following suit.

Rachel then worked for emerging technology companies, including one of the nation’s earliest providers of telehealth, Amwell, to bring virtual care to mental health, making it less expensive and more convenient.  In 2018 she began offering The Museum of Happiness to community and corporate groups throughout the U.S.  Rachel is the author of 3 books on this topic and lives with her spouse and 2 children in Winter Park.
