Founded by two local women, Roli Agrawal and Jennifer Behette, Brainistas is an educational series of seminars that work within modern day life.
Their next talk, “Facing It After 40 – Taking Charge of Your Health,” will feature Dr. Mildred Gamble on Jan 26, from 9:30am until 11:00am, at the Garden Education Center, 130 Bible Street in Cos Cob.
Dr. Gamble is a Board Certified Internal Medicine Physician with a private practice in Greenwich, that provides preventative care, diagnosis and management of common and complex illnesses and assistance with the reversal of existing health conditions in adolescents, adults and seniors.
For many years, Dr. Gamble specialized in the serious and urgent medical care of hospitalized patients. As well as keeping people alive, she served as a Clinical Instructor in Medicine through Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons (i.e. teaching the new doctors everything) and continues in this role today.
However, Dr. Gamble came to realize that our current health care system, which is based on illness and injury, fails every patient at almost every visit. She created Greenwich Pure Medical, LLC to proactively work towards health and wellness with each patient on an individualized basis.
Dr. Gamble’s mini-lectures are focused on a very simple concept – that you (as a patient) are designed to be well. Every aspect of what makes you “you” (lifestyle choices, thought patterns, nutrition, sleep, emotional reactions, vitality, external stressors, safety, good/bad habits…) influences health.
And as health is your most important asset, these specific impediments must be identified and addressed.
Her lectures include some of her unique approaches to doing just that. Dr. Gamble motivates listeners to develop their own healthy habits for disease reversal and wellness preservation.
Dr. Gamble’s reach extends beyond her practice in Greenwich. She frequently travels to Africa with a team of local volunteers to provide free two-day medical clinics in the slums and remote villages surrounding Dakar, Senegal and Nairobi, Kenya through the 501(c)(3) organization Heartbeat International Ministries (Heartbeatim.org). In addition, one Saturday morning a month she can be found volunteering her medical skills at the AmeriCares Free Clinic located in South Norwalk.
