Renee Canada is the founder of The MindBodySHIFT. A journalist for over 10 years, she has written about a variety of topics including education, race, local politics, music, art, and the environment. The subject that has emerged nearest and dearest to her heart is health and wellness, particularly as she has overcome years of chronic illness.
As she navigated the U.S. healthcare system without a compass, supplementing her own research with graduate courses in public health, she’s learned a lot about what works and what needs changing in Western medicine. She’s explored complementary medicine in depth, and she’s most recently found inspiration and the potential for healing others (and herself) with expressive arts therapy.
Through The MindBodySHIFT, Canada plans to continue her research and reporting of trends in integrative medicine, with the hopes of providing a symbiotic forum for others who share her passion for health and wellness.
