A Message from the Director of SPRC

“Medicine has long focused on how to diagnose and treat disease, but what people are mostly interested in is health and, beyond simple health, the fulfillment of wellness.

Wellness has been difficult to define to-date because it encompasses all these delicate and exciting experiences that make a life worth living, filled with physical and intellectual achievement. It includes physical, mental, and social wellbeing.  Physical vitality, mental alacrity, social satisfaction, a sense of accomplishment and personal fulfillment all contribute to wellness, and the whole is greater than the parts.

We aim to translate the everyday queries, worries, and interests of people about how to live a better life into concrete, scientific evidence that can really make our lives better.

As Director of SPRC, I invite you to join us in this exciting journey with our Stanford Health 4 All Seminars.”
