Community Med School Guiding Principles
Greater education is needed for the safe and effective use of complementary and integrative medicine in the community. Quality health education programs have the potential to improve the health and quality of life for millions of people. Media messages about health can be overwhelming and confusing, and this is especially true for complementary and alternative medicine.
There is a need for more accurate, credible, health information that focuses on wellness rather than just fighting disease. For 5000 years traditional Chinese medicine has emphasized preventive medicine in the community. Fusing this ancient wisdom with the latest scientific findings in integrative medicine we provide outstanding health education programs, featuring expert advice on important health information.
A Network of Health Promotion Partners
There is a need for more interdisciplinary collaboration between western and eastern medical communities, to provide a more holistic approach to preventive medicine. The Community Med School welcomes partnerships with others who share our passion and wish to be associated with our efforts. Partnering with groups as diverse as the University of Denver’s OLLI program, Harvard Medical School’s Osher Integrative Medicine Institute and the University of Oxford Dept. of Continuing Education, the program provides lectures at various locations in the community. We would be pleased to work with your organization in creating health promotion programs, keynote addresses, seminars and classes.
