Tips for Leading a Mentally Healthy Lifestyle Topic of 2013 Baughman Lecture

Posted on Wednesday, October 16, 2013 [8:07 AM]

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- The 10 keys to a healthy life will be the topic of an upcoming lecture at Lindsey Wilson College.

Dr. Christopher K. Peters of Louisville, Ky., will speak about "Top 10 List for a Healthy Lifestyle" at 3:30 p.m. CT on Tuesday, Oct. 22, in the Norma and Glen Hodge Center for Discipleship, 402 Helen Flatt Drive.


The talk is part of LWC's second-annual Dr. Henry Baughman Visiting Fellows Program.


Peters, who is a psychiatrist with the University of Louisville Physicians, will discuss how lead a healthy mental lifestyle. A Kentucky native, Peters works in sports medicine and has been a consultant for U of L athletic teams.


Peters said his talk will focus on young adults and include "tips for achieving wellness, balance and moderation -- things that we in America don't always do well."


"The focus of the talk will be, taking from the field of mental health, what are the kinds of things that we've learned that one can incorporate into their life to create better balance and well-being," Peters said.


Peters said that many American have "work-hard, play-hard mentality" that "gets us all into trouble."


"We're an excessive society … and I think that can be challenging if you don't try to balance things out," he said. "Even good things can become bad if you do too much of it."


An assistant professor in the U of L School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics, Peters' area of specialties are child and adolescent psychiatry. He's also studied autism, bipolar disorder, depression and sports medicine.


The Dr. Henry Baughman Visiting Fellows Program was established in 2012 by Henry Baughman of Stanford, Ky. The program invites a scholar in the field of health, safety and wellness to give a public talk and meet with LWC students. Modeled on the prestigious Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellows program, the mission of the Baughman Visiting Fellows Program is to enlighten area residents and LWC students about critical life issues.


A retired college professor, Baughman helped start Western Kentucky University's emergency medical technologist/training program, and he also shaped some of Kentucky's regulations for emergency technologists.
