The Student Healer Association, an interprofessional student organization at UTMB, plans to teach mindfulness meditation techniques for the management of stress, chronic pain and various life changes to patients at St. Vincent’s occupational therapy and psychiatry clinics. Students will be trained on how to help patients become more present, aware and non- judgmental using this affordable and accessible practice of focused attention. Suggested meditation exercises will be provided to users via free phone/web applications or digital CD recordings.
