The Integrative Health Policy Consortium (IHPC) will hold its annual board retreat next month. On January 23-26, 2020, the board will gather at Life University in Marietta, Ga., to discuss a restructuring of the consortium’s governance, as well as legislative priorities of their Partners for Health organizations.
As a fast-growing not-for-profit corporation that has built a vital network of professional organizations who are bringing integrative health care to the forefront in the U.S., IHPC depends on its members to help determine this ongoing work and strategy. If you have any pressing issues that you would like to see addressed, please connect to the leadership site on the IHPC website or contact IHPC directly via email at email@example.com.
IHPC is comprised of 28 organizations and institutions and 12 at-large national experts representing more than 600,000 state-licensed and nationally certified healthcare professionals. They are the regulated (licensed or nationally certified) providers of integrative medicine, holistic nursing, chiropractic, acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, public health, certified professional midwifery, massage therapy, nutrition and homeopathy.
IHPC is a trusted voice on Capitol Hill. It was founded in 2001 at the request of legislators who recognized the need on the Hill for a national organization representing the consensus voice of the integrative healthcare community, aligned around wellness, health creation and choice. IHPC is championing the Congressional Integrative Health & Wellness Caucus and functions as a critical watchdog of the federal agencies overseeing America’s health and health research needs. IHPC envisions a world with no barriers to health and is focused on removing barriers to health and promoting a healthier world that incentivizes health creation for all individuals, communities and the planet.
