Nicola Finley, M.D., of Canyon Ranch will present “Wellness: The Integrative Way” at the opening luncheon for Brandeis National Committee Tucson chapter’s 2019-2020 program year, Thursday, Oct. 17.
Finley worked for more than 10 years at El Rio Community Health Center and St. Mary’s Hospital in Tucson before joining Canyon Ranch in 2013. She received her medical degree from George Washington University School of Medicine, where she did her residency. She also completed a fellowship in the integrative medicine program at the University of Arizona. Currently, she is an adjunct faculty member at the UA Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health.
Finley has a passion for women’s health topics with an emphasis on female intimate issues, menopause, and osteoporosis. With her interest in taking care of the whole person — mind, body, and spirit — she highlights the importance of connections to others and spirituality in medicine. Her support of an integrative approach to wellness extends to her personal life, with acupuncture sessions and activities such as dance, Zumba, jogging, hiking, and yoga as part of her regular routine. She also leads a walking medical presentation outdoors on the Canyon Ranch property.
The lunch will be held at The Lodge at Ventana Canyon, 6200 N. Clubhouse Lane, beginning at 11:30 a.m. The cost is $39. RSVP by mailing a check payable to BNC to Sorkey Fortman, 6300 E.
