Education is the foundation on which transformation is built.

In 2010, to facilitate outreach concerning the benefits of integrative medicine, utilizing evidenced-based integrative interventions or establishing new integrative programs, The Bravewell Collaborative began to develop reports for use in addressing the people and sectors that influence health care in the United States.

These reports are provided free of charge courtesy of The Bravewell Collaborative.
