This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Your attitudes affect your behavior. Your behaviors affect your health. So if you change your attitudes, can you change your health outcomes? In this informative talk, Dr. Smith shares the research showing that we can choose which parts of our brain to feed and how this can drastically affect our quality of health and life. Lee Smith, MD, is Director of Stress Medicine at The Center for MindBody Health in Salt Lake City. He is an internist with subspecialty in behavioral medicine, which interfaces mental and physical health. He has chaired national curriculum committees in this area. He established the Stress Medicine Clinic at the University of Utah, where he was Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine. He previously was Medical Director of the Behavioral and Stress Medicine Task Force at LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City, where he was also Vice-Chairman of the Department of Internal Medicine. He was a cofounder of The Institute for Spirituality & Healing in Medicine. Dr. Smith’s research interests have centered on defining the types of medical disorders associated with anxiety and depression, on chronic pain problems, and on the effects on health outcomes of effectively treating the stress issues. He co-authored a widely used textbook entitled Mind-Body Health: The Effects of Attitudes, Emotions and Relationships, currently in its fifth edition as well as authored many other scholarly articles and books. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
