I met Dr. Brooke Stuart through our UF Health – Jacksonville Aging and Integrative Pain Assessment and Management Initiative (AI-PAMI). AI-PAMI provides alternative pain management education for Northeast Florida older adults who manage their chronic pain and caregivers who assist for adults suffering from chronic pain. Dr. Stuart partnered with AI-PAMI in October of 2020. Over the past 3 years, she has provided our NE Florida community with a wealth of education, affordable resources, and tools. This includes webinars on how to shift your stress response through mindset, diet, and physical activity. She also shared her expertise on how acupressure and acupuncture can help manage pain, expanded on the benefits of meditation, and most recently she dived into the benefits of good sleep and how to obtain a healthy night’s sleep.
In 2022, I transitioned into the program manager role. During this transition, the previous AI-PAMI program manager spoke highly of Dr. Stuart, and suggested that when planning future alternative medicine content, I should reach out to Dr. Stuart. In 2023, I was able to work with Dr. Stuart and her team firsthand. We worked together to plan and create a sleep webinar. During the planning process Dr. Stuart and Eileen’s passion for helping others shined through. They were both kind, eager to collaborate, share their expertise, maintained clear communication, all while delivering and presenting a fantastic presentation.
Not only have I enjoyed working with Dr. Stuart, but our NE FL community members have appreciated her as well. At the most recent webinar, a community member shared: “This was the BEST WEBINAR ever on insomnia (and I’ve listened to so many). She covered everything aspects thoroughly in a short period of time. I was truly impressed and will be trying some of her recommendations.”
I highly recommend Dr. Stuart to any team or organization that is interested in providing education on overall health and alternative medicine.
