About our Speaker:

Dr. Maltz earned a Medical Degree and Master in Public Health from the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston, TX. She completed a combined Internal and Preventive Medicine Residency at UTMB in June, 2011 and is currently partaking in a 2-year Integrative Medicine Fellowship at Stamford Hospital in Stamford, CT. During her Fellowship, she has undergone clinical training in acupuncture, trigger point injections, spirituality, nutrition, mind-body therapies, botanicals and herbs as well as an intensive 1000-hour online curriculum created by The University of Arizona Integrative Medicine Program founded by Dr. Andrew Weil. She also completed a 300-hour Medical Acupuncture course through the State University of New York (SUNY) Downstate.

Dr. Maltz's specific interests include helping her patients and populations improve their health through lifestyle interventions including, but not limited to, eastern medical practices, nutrition, botanicals, mind-body techniques and decreasing environmental exposures. She is a practitioner of Peggy Huddleston's Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster program - a guided imagery program clinically proven to decrease pre-surgical anxiety and post-surgical use of pain medications as well as increase healing time of all types of surgeries as well as the Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT) program. She is a Level II Reiki practictioner and plans to add clinical hypnosis to her repertoire to further improve her patients' well-being. She spent the last year of her four-year medical residency participating in health policy, cancer prevention and environmental health rotations and enjoys guiding people through the overwhelming amount of health information available on the internet.

Dr. Maltz is a member of the American College of Physicians, the American Medical Association, the American College of Preventive Medicine and the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, of which she was just elected to the Board of Directors. She was born and raised in Houston, TX and is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a major in Psychology and minor in Biology. In her recreational time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, exercising, reading about psychology and philosophy, dancing, listening to music, dabbling in photography, frolicking in nature, cooking healthfully and exploring the world through international travel. She credits her large extended network of family and friends and her patient care experiences as her inspiration for becoming a force of change in the world. Dr. Maltz will be teaching medical students and residents the benefits of Integrative Medicine in an Assistant Professor position at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine at the start of October 2013. She is a Board Member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM).
