While Earl Monroe’s celebrity status derives mainly from his finesse and dazzling skills on the basketball court as a prolific point guard for the New York Knicks’ 1973 championship team and the Baltimore Bullets, few are familiar with the post career physical challenges he has had to manage over the last ten years.
Joining Desiree Watson, a wellness pioneer in her
own right, Earl will discuss how the integration of complementary and alternative medicine coupled with mainstream medical practices has helped him endure more than 30 separate surgeries and manage type 2 diabetes.

Named one of the “50 Greatest Players” in the history of the game (1996), Earl will share the key ingredients that comprise his “playbook” for navigating life challenges and physical hardships while striving to achieve the winning recipe of mind, body and spirit.
As a celebrity spokesman for health and wellness issues, Earl has travelled extensively to share his experiences and anecdotes to help others understand how being open to complementary and alternative medicine and integrated health programs can assist them in their wellness journey.
