He was hailed as “the pioneer of alternative medicine” by President William Clinton, while TIME magazine has described him as “one of the top 100 heroes and icons of the century.”

He will address delegates on this year’s theme, “Building a Well World,” during the conference taking place at The St. Regis Mexico City from November 13-15.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of this gathering of like-minded, forward-thinking wellness influencers who are committed to helping to create a peaceful, just, sustainable, happier and healthy world,” says Chopra.
