2013 Trudeau fellow Timothy Caulfield, Canada Research Chair in Health Law and Policy and professor in the Faculty of Law and the School of Public Health at the University of Alberta, signs an article in the May issue of Policy Options. In "Be mindful, but not mindless," the author states that "There is a growing body of evidence to support the idea that mindfulness has health benefits. When advocates of the practice — be they celebrities, motivational speakers or university-based clinicians — write or speak about mindfulness and meditation, there are almost always more than a few research-has-shown phrases. And this is where the health policy challenge lies."
