This timely briefing will describe how current integrative health practices are addressing the discouraging status of American health reported in the influential Institute of Medicine (IOM) Report, “U.S. Health in International Perspective: Shorter Lives, Poorer Health.”
Presenters have practiced and for decades have been the leaders in preventive, health-creating, and patient-centered integrative care. They will describe important collaborations with the conventional healthcare system, including in medical schools, national health care policy, military health, and regional healthcare systems.
They will highlight the compelling potential for integrative practice to contribute to the nation’s shrinking primary care work force, and the growing evidence for the financial benefits of integrative practice.
