Major Policy Issues

  • Pain & The Opioid Crisis

    Our Integrative Approaches to Pain and Addiction Committee - IAPAC - working to bring proven effective options to care.
  • The Water in Flint

    Environmental catastrophes like the water in Flint, MI, also require the whole-person view of health.

The leaders of the emerging academic and professional organizations responded to the interest expressed by members of Congress to be kept informed of the advance of integrative health and medicine in America.
