From a firm foundation of science, the Institute for Integrative Health aims to reframe the conversation on health, nurture creative solutions, explore cutting edge ideas, and engage the public in an active emphasis on optimal health.
The Institute for Integrative Health seeks to catalyze new ideas in healthcare. We are committed to advancing science with expanded research methods, linking experts across disciplines to generate new ideas, mentoring the leaders of today and tomorrow, exploring new models of health, and discovering fresh ways to engage the public in its pursuit of health.
The vision for the Institute for Integrative Health is to optimize people’s health and well-being and shift the healthcare system from its predominant focus on managing disease to a focus on promoting health across the lifespan. We are building an environment that fosters creativity, collaboration, and healing. Our network of international scholars will expand the boundaries of the science of health, translating research into practice and testing new models of care. We will guide future leaders toward a more integrative health system and create a state- of-the-art clinic which will set the standard for how integrative medicine is best practiced and provide a place to train visiting doctors.
We recognize innovation may come from unexpected places. We value originality, creativity, transparency, and collegiality and support people with bright ideas who have a proven track record. We are not interested in supporting the status quo or taking incremental steps. We do not support projects that fall under the auspices of conventional funding sources. We create an environment where contemplation and mindful interaction are integral to our discussions and decision-making process.
