Integrative Medicine

Skylight Gardens (Rotunda Room)

Come join us as we discuss further the defining principles and practice of integrative medicine.  In integrative medicine, patient and practitioner are partners in the healing process, taking in all factors that influence health, wellness, and disease into consideration, including mind, spirit, and community, as well as the body.  Learn the appropriate use of both conventional and alternative methods that facilitates the body's innate healing response. Alongside the concept of treatment, the broader concepts of health promotion and the prevention of illness are paramount.
