Dr. Deepak Chopra, best-selling author and pioneer in integrative medicine, and Alice Walton, founder of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, announced the Sages and Scientists 2019 Symposium is set for Nov. 14-17 at the museum in Bentonville.

“Using the power of convening to address and overcome critical challenges, like well-being, is a key component of the Sages and Scientists mission,” Walton said in a news release Thursday morning.

Chopra and his foundation launched Sages and Scientists in 2010 and has held four symposiums, all in California.

“The symposium is a catalyst for our work to improve global well-being trends and reveal the future of integrative health, humanity and the cosmos,”said Chopra, founder of the Chopra Foundation, according to the news release.

Speakers scheduled for the gathering include: Dr. Rudolph E. Tanzi, professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School; Anousheh Ansari, CEO of the XPRIZE Foundation; Desh Deshpande, chairman of the Sparta Group; Kat Graham, actress, singer, dancer and producer; Paul Tudor Jones, founder of Tudor Investment Corporation; and Dava Newman, Apollo Program Professor of Astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Walton, longtime businesswoman and philanthropist, is the chairwoman of the museum’s board of directors and board member of the Walton Family Foundation. She founded Art Bridges, a nonprofit foundation that partners with institutions to provide greater access to American art through projects that engage communities.

Chopra is board certified in internal medicine, endocrinology and metabolism. He is the author of more than 85 books translated into 43 languages, including numerous New York Times bestsellers. His latest book is “Metahuman: Unleashing Your Infinite Potential.”
