Dr. Dana Lerman

A decade-long infectious disease consultant who has since been trained in psychedelic assisted therapy, Dr. Lerman will share her story of how helping kids with cancer made her want to learn medicine, what it was like working as an infectious disease expert during COVID, and how fascinating it has been to bring intention, ceremony, and inner healing intelligence to modern medicine – that that will greatly benefit patients as well as clinicians.
