About the Center
The Center for Integrative Health and Wellness at the College of Medicine focuses on promoting integrative medicine principles into the College of Medicine and the community. This is accomplished by combining 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 aims to improve the health of the local and global community through innovative, internationally-recognized research, education, clinical practice, and community engagement efforts focused on integrative health and wellness.
At the College of Medicine, our faculty provide evidence-based education to enrich and cultivate integrative medicine skills in order to teach the value of treating the whole person. Using an evidence-based perspectives, graduates of our medical school are 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.
