|ABOUT SCOTTSDALE INSTITUTE for HEALTH and MEDICINE|
Formed in 1993, Scottsdale Institute for Health and Medicine’s (SIHM) mission is to bring leading edge health care programs to the public. The health care of the twenty-first century has yet to be defined. It is the belief of SIHM that success in the future will depend on the commitment of those willing to explore new approaches with an open mind. In keeping with that philosophy, SIHM will continue to examine research in the fields of health and medicine for the purpose of identifying what is most effective. Additionally, it will strive to introduce and implement these approaches.

The Attention Academy® Program offers classes, workshops, and seminars on developing attention skills for students, teachers, and parents. The mission of The Attention Academy® Program is to help students improve their quality of life through practicing mindfulness. The goal of the program is to help students learn to (1) increase their attention to the present experience, (2) approach each experience without judgment, and (3) view each experience as novel and new with a “beginner’s eye”.
