Sustaining Leading Clinical Centers as Models for Change

The true test and benefit of integrative medicine is in the care of patients.


In the latter half of 2003, The Bravewell Collaborative adopted a strategy to empower and accelerate the growth of leading clinical centers of integrative medicine, which could then serve as models for change in the larger health care delivery system.  The centers held their first meeting in the spring of 2004 and have continued to meet twice yearly in pursuit of this goal.  The members of the Bravewell Clinical Network are:
