Dr. Howard Murad to Speak on "The Art of Living Well" at photo l.a.

EL SEGUNDO, CA--(Marketwired - January 15, 2014) - Murad, Inc. is pleased to announce that Dr. Howard Murad will be a featured presenter at photo l.a. (www.photola.com), the acclaimed photographic art exposition, as part of this year's program of presentations. 

In his presentation on "The Art of Living Well," Dr. Murad will discuss the role artistic expression can play in helping people to look, live and feel better. He will explore the science behind the therapeutic benefits of encouraging active artistic expression and the role creating art can play in an integrated wellness lifestyle guided by the principles of Inclusive Health® -- an innovative approach to wellness he discovered. He will also discuss the connection between art and youth-building, a whole-body method of preserving one's youthful appearance and good health.

"I'm excited to be able to share the health benefits of creating art with the attendees of this wonderful event," said Dr. Murad. "Our research has shown that participating in art has a direct correlation to improved health and overall wellbeing, and in this presentation, I'll explain why." 

Dr. Murad's presentation will take place downtown at the historic LA Mart building (1933 Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90007) on Sunday, January 19, 2014, from 1:30 - 2:30pm.

Celebrating its 23rd year, photo l.a. 2014 will present its widest collaboration of photography yet, exhibiting works dating from the 19th century, up through the most cutting edge contemporary photo-based art. photo l.a. 2014 will continue its celebration of the photographic arts, both through the exhibition of internationally renowned galleries, and as a platform for education and discussion. Known for its dynamic programming, photo l.a. will once again spearhead a unique series of lectures, roundtable discussions, and docent tours as a valuable supplement to its exhibitions.

Dr. Murad himself is no stranger to the benefits of artistic expression. In 2008, after undergoing surgery to repair a detached retina, he was required to keep his head down with his chin to his chest for a month while the retina healed. At the suggestion of his wife, Dr. Murad started painting to help pass the time and discovered an unexpected passion for art and a way to reintroduce play and freedom of expression back into his life. Now an accomplished artist with hundreds of works having been exhibited and/or published, Dr. Murad has been benefiting his patients by making art therapy an important component of Inclusive Health.
