Spotlight on Student’s Summer Experiences

GW School of Medicine profiled GWCIM’s summer intern in its Student’s Summer Experiences report:

Shivani Shah, who is in the Integrative Medicine Track, worked with the GW Center for Integrative Medicine, where she conducted research for a yoga therapy initiative and co-taught meditation and pranayama classes with the goal of reducing stress and improving mood and sleep quality. “One of the great things about integrative medicine is that they focus on different ways to treat the patient based on their lifestyle,” she says. “It’s given me a different perspective from what I’ve learned in classes and lectures, and I look forward to using it throughout my career.”
