Description

Located within the University of Massachusetts Medical School, we have pioneered the integration of mindfulness meditation and other mindfulness-based approaches in mainstream medicine and healthcare through patient care, research, academic medical and professional education, and into the broader society through diverse outreach and public service initiatives. Directed by Saki F. Santorelli, EdD, MA, since 2000 and founded in 1995 by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD , the Center is an outgrowth of the acclaimed Stress Reduction Clinic – the oldest and largest academic medical center-based stress reduction program in the world.
