“Supplements, Herbs, and Medication: Clearing Confusion to Promote Safety and Optimize Health” will be the focus of the fifth annual Donald P. Lauda Wellness Lecture Series on Thursday, March 8, 6-9:30 p.m. at The Pointe in The Walter Pyramid at CSULB. Doctors Sarah L. Sandell, Allen Arnette and Mark deDubovay are this year’s featured guest speakers.
Dr. Sandell is in private practice in Los Alamitos and is on the medical staff at St. Mary’s Hospital in Long Beach and an assistant clinical professor of medicine at UCLA School of Medicine. Dr. Arnette is the founder/director of the acupuncture and Oriental medicine department within the Advanced Wellness Center in Long Beach, of which Dr. deDubovay is the founder/director. His continuing education has focused on advanced nutritional strategies for autoimmune diseases, obesity-related health problems, science-based natural therapies, and neurobiology of mood and cognitive disorders, among others.
Named after Donald P. Lauda, longtime dean of the College of Health and Human Services who retired in 2002, the series is an innovative compilation of presentations by experts in mental, physical and spiritual health. This annual series hosts lectures in the field of wellness with the goal of providing information and insight in this subject area for all individuals.
“I would like to have the average person leave a lecture informed, able to process the information within their own lives, able to use the information in choosing strategies for their wellness; thereby improving their own wellness and that of their family,” said Lauda. “At the same time, I have always felt that the lectures should have relevance for health care practitioners.”
