Learn more about Integrative Medicine in Women’s Health Care.

INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE focuses on the whole person, mind-body-spirit, and acknowledges that the relationship between patient and provider in itself can be healing. It is inquiry driven and makes appropriate use of both conventional and alternative methods. Jeffrey K Harris, MD embodied these principles and was a pioneer in our community. He leaves, his gift of integrative medicine as a legacy and we dedicate this conference to this model of astute, accepting, and holistic caring.

Women–the healers, multitaskers, mothers and sisters–have a story to tell. Only when we listen are we best able to care. By attending this conference local physicians and practitioners will be better able to provide health care for the incredible women they care for in their practices.
