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

ImageThis Integrator feature is a quick capture of highlights from stories on the web relative to integrative medicine in the prior month. Here are 20 involving medical delivery systems and 11 more in communities. Of particular note are a widely picked up article on integrative care for the elderly out of Thomas Jefferson University; publication of research on acupuncture and its potential role in managing blood pressure, led by John Longhurst, MD at the Susan Samueli Institute; and a review of whole system research on integrative health and medicine in systems from Australia's Alan Bensussan, PhD that shows how little quality information we have on the topic.  (Note that Global News Links are now posted at The Global Integrator Blog for Global Advances in Health and Medicine Journal.)
