Sedona AZ (August 20, 2019) – The Mental Health Coalition Verde Valley’s August 26 program will feature Dr. David Tomasi, a lecturer, psychotherapist, and inpatient psychiatry group therapist, sharing the results of his recent study based on an experiment that combined physical activity with information about healthful nutrition to build a holistic, drug-free intervention for mental health in-patients in the Psychiatry Unit of the University of Vermont Medical Center. The results of the study by Dr. Tomasi and 2 colleagues were published in the journal “Global Advances in Health and Medicine.”
The meeting will take place on Monday, August 26, 10AM-11:30AM at Yavapai College, 4215 Arts Village Dr., Sedona. The program is free and open to the public and is a partnership with OLLI and sponsored by Spectrum Healthcare Group.
According to Prof. Tomasi, “The general attitude of medicine is that you treat the primary problem first, and exercise was never considered to be a life or death treatment option. Now that we know it’s so effective, it can become as fundamental as pharmacological intervention.”

He is also the co-author of Positive Patient Response to a Structured Exercise Program Delivered in Inpatient Psychiatry (Global Advances in Health and Medicine, 2019), the most read research item from the University of Vermont (Researchgate, 2019).
