Pando to speak at national rheumatology conference Nov. 7

November 2, 2017

Dr. Jose A. Pando will present a lecture titled “Complementary and Integrative Medicine for Rheumatic Diseases,” Tuesday, Nov. 7, at the annual National American College of Rheumatology Conference in San Diego, Calif. Over 8,000 physicians from the United States and other countries will gather at this conference to learn about advances in the field of rheumatology.

The lecture will highlight ways that clinical practitioners can integrate complementary and integrative medicine modalities to improve the well-being of their patients. Such modalities include, but are not limited to, diet, exercise, yoga, tai chi, mindfulness and dietary supplements. The goal is to empower patients to feel and function better by incorporating recent advances in healthcare with modalities that have been available for centuries. Rheumatic diseases are the No. 1 condition for which adults in the United Staes use complementary and integrative medicine modalities.

Pando completed his residency at Yale University, and fellowships at Georgetown University and the National Institutes of Health. In February 2018 he will complete Dr. Andrew Weil's Integrative Medicine Fellowship at the University of Arizona. He has been in practice in Lewes for the last 20 years. He is co-director with his wife, Catherine Welton Pando, RN, of the Lewes Wellness Center at 20268 Plantation Road.
