Quick Links to Integrative Medicine News in Medical Systems and Communities: May 2015

ImageThis typically monthly Integrator feature is, for May 2015, a quick capture of highlights from the stories that flow in daily from various sources relative to "integrative medicine." A couple of significant themes and events from May are the Tracy Gaudet-Bernie Sanders chat about integrative VA care, an interesting reference to a Joint Commission note on dietary supplements, the new website for the new ACIMH a.k.a. "The Consortium," a new clinic for the Weil/U Az program, an intriguing John Templeton Foundation grant to better arm chaplains for work in the evidence-based medicine (EBM) environment. (Note that Global News Links are now posted at The Global Integrator Blog for Global Advances in Health and Medicine - see related notice here.)
