June 5 with Dr. David Gershan ~ Aging and the Life Cycles of Human Development
The segment will survey the life cycles of the human being and the broad polarities in health and illness that Anthroposophic Medicine works with in order to focus on aging:  Inflammation and Sclerosis, Incarnation and Excarnation. This survey will lead to a new appreciation of typical illness seen in older age:  Hypertension, Withdrawal vs Engagement, Arthritis. — David Gershan, MD, is a Family and Community Physician.  He specializes in Anthroposophic Medicine and has a background in the full scope of allopathic practice, homeless and poverty medicine, and HIV care.

June 19 with Dr. Renee Meyer ~ Movement, Will, and Bone: Anthroposophy and Osteoporosis
How can osteoporosis be understood from a 3-fold and 4-fold perspective? What insights does anthroposophy bring to the process and treatment of osteoporosis ? Is osteoporosis “ physiologic” or is it a disease? — Renee Meyer, MD is trained and boarded in Internal Medicine and Geriatrics. She is also a  certified Anthroposophic Physician, and a member of the PAAM (Physicians Association for Anthroposophic Medicine) Board since 2006. In 2012, while working at the VA Hospital in Charleston, South Carolina, she conducted and published a pilot study about Cardiodoron and heart failure. Dr Meyer began a private medical practice in 2009, focusing on the anthroposophic approach and medical remedies. Patients often present with chronic medical problems without previous satisfactory improvement. Through this practice, she published a case study in 2017 of a patient with a chronic illness, who experienced significant improvement with anthroposophic remedies.

July 10 with Dr. Pat Hart ~ Enhancing Spiritual Care at End of Life
Using insights from Anthroposophy to offer unique, and profound yet simple measures for helping our loved ones in their journey across the threshold. — Patricia Hart, MD, works in an inpatient hospice in NC. After working 30 years in hospitals as a nephrologist, intensivist, & finally palliative care consultant, she cultivated a deep interest in the mystery of life, death, & afterdeath.
