Mindful Leadership with Dr. Astrid Pujari

March 7  at Noon
The Westin, 1900 5th Ave. 
 
Join us for a program on Mindful Leadership with Dr. Astrid Pujari. Since 2006, Dr. Pujari has been consistently rated one of Seattle’s top physicians. Her practice focuses on blending Eastern and Western medicine. She will help us understand how mindfulness can transform how we show up in the boardroom and at home. In addition to her practice at the Pujari Center in Freemont, Dr. Pujari offers free classes to cancer patients and their families at Virginia Mason — focusing on a wholistic approach to fighting cancer. She has also written two books: The Healthy Back Book and The Healthy Knees Book.
