Self-Care – Organized into eight components of pro-active self-care and focused on lifestyle strategies and skills to support the whole person, body, mind, and spirit.

Professional Care – Explore ways clinicians and others can enhance whole health and well-being for various conditions through an integrative approach while bringing the best clinical care to patients.

Complementary and Integrative Approaches – Explore therapeutic and lifestyle approaches to health that focus on the whole person, are informed by evidence, and are aimed at achieving optimal health and healing.
