The University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley is hosting its next Scholars Series presentation on Monday, December 6, from noon to 1:00 p.m. in Perry Hall.  The guest speaker, Sailaja Kamaraju, M.D., will address, "Faith and Spirituality." 

Dr. Kamaraju is a board-certified hematology oncologist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health, who specializes in the treatment of patients with cancer and blood disorders. She believes in getting to know her patients and their families, and encourages them to be involved in their loved one's care and treatment. In addition to comprehensive cancer care, Dr. Kamaraju has a special interest in the treatment of breast cancer and gynecological cancers.

Dr. Kamaraju believes in living with a purpose and balance. "The current world demands a great amount of time in developing our skills to fulfill our dreams," she said. "In this constant battle between the time and achieving our goals we lose track of our own physical and mental health. It is very important that we identify these problems in a timely manner and start living with a balance and achieve the goals.

"We all have tremendous inner resources of peace, love and non violence. For my presentation, I'll discuss various methods of these practices that are scientifically proven in several medical specialties. Some of these methods are currently offered to individuals with chronic illness where excellent results are observed. Mind, body and spirit concept has been integrated in to several medical specialties that help an individual an insight in to his or her own health and a positive attitude."

The Scholars Series is free and open to the public, with unreserved seating. For more information about the Scholars Series and this presentation, contact the UWFox Office of University Relations, 920-832-2611, email david.hager@uwc.edu, or visit www.uwfox.uwc.edu.
