About the Center

Integrative medicine combines conventional medicine with evidence-based complementary therapies such as mindfulness approaches, nutrition and health coaching, acupuncture, massage therapy, yoga therapy and stress reduction techniques for optimal healing.

The Center for Integrative Health and Wellness focuses on promoting integrative medicine principles at the UC Academic Health Center and throughout the community. We are working to engage members of all colleges and units across the university, along with our collaborative partners in the community, to develop robust integrative health and wellness initiatives and programs.

Our faculty provide education to enrich and cultivate integrative medicine skills for medical students and promote the value of treating the whole person. Using evidence-based perspectives, graduates will be able to address and counsel patients in the use of integrative modalities, improving patient care and satisfaction. Likewise, our researchers are involved in several federally-funded research projects that focus on integrative care. 

Task Force for Integrative Health and Wellness at UC

A Task Force for Integrative Health and Wellness was created at UC in 2014, comprised of representatives from the UC Colleges of Medicine, Allied Health Sciences, Nursing, and Pharmacy, as well as UC wellness groups and partner organizations Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the Cincinnati VA Medical Center.

The purpose of this collaborative group is to synergistically increase and develop robust inter-professional integrative health and wellness initiatives and programs across our Academic Health Center, more broadly at UC and within our community, and ultimately with national and international partners.

Current task force initiatives include:
