“Wellness is about so much more than simply the absence of disease,” says Jeralyn Brossfield, MD, Medical Director of the Eisenhower Wellness Institute. “The body knows how to heal; if we can bring it back into balance, it has the capacity to be really healthy for our entire lifespan. This is resilience, and wellness is about cultivating this resilience.”

Annenberg Center for Health Sciences at Eisenhower
