At the 2016 International Congress on Integrative Medicine and Health (ICIMH) conference in Las Vegas, Osher Center predoctoral research fellow Elizabeth Adler was the winner of a Trainee Poster Prize by the International Society for Complementary Medicine Research (ISCMR). The title of her poster presentation was “The Impact of a Mindfulness-Based Weight Loss Intervention on Sleep Quality Among Adults with Obesity: Data from the SHINE Randomized Controlled Trial.” (See poster.)
ISCMR poster prizes are awarded to trainees (graduate students, students in CAM or conventional health care professional programs, or postdoctoral fellows) based on the originality, potential scientific impact, and quality of the poster they present at the Congress. Judging occurs during the poster sessions identified in the Congress program, and the winners are announced on the last day of the Congress.
ISCMR is a worldwide scientific non-profit professional organization of researchers, practitioners and policy makers devoted to foster cooperative and multidisciplinary research and development, as well as the application of knowledge in the fields of complementary, traditional and integrative medicine.
Elizabeth said, “I am thrilled to be recognized by the International Society for Complementary Medicine Research for this study. This poster would not be possible if not for the incredible support of the Osher Center, especially Dr. Anand Dhruva, Dr. Rick Hecht, and Dr. Patty Moran.”
