American Health Council taps Federoff for board position
With experience gleaned both from professional undertakings and personal experience, Fedoroff brings her unique perspective to the business of health care. After earning a certificate from the New York-based American Institute of Mental Imagery in 2000, she served as co-editor of the institution’s 2006’s The Encyclopedia of Mental Imagery. Federoff has also worked closely with at-risk children, winning awards as CEO of Programs for Parents, a New Jersey-based not-for-profit.
Affected by two family illnesses, Federoff has focused more consciously on health care issues recently. She hopes to raise public awareness of phenomenology, a holistic view of treatment focused on the whole person as one interconnected system rather than as an assemblage of separate parts.
“What I once knew of this industry seems very changed,” she said, expressing a desire to contribute to the new face of health care and to become “a kinder voice” to influence potentially adverse changes in the health care system, especially for inner-city populations.
Her blog, entitled “Tools for Spiritual Living,” helps readers to recognize and understand current belief systems — and to change obsolete beliefs — by using imagery exercises.
