Description: 
Integrative Medicine is a healing-oriented approach to patient care that focuses on the health of the whole person, including the impact of one’s lifestyle. Using an evidence-based approach, this field incorporates conventional medicine and alternative therapies when they are supported by science. Integrative Medicine considers the health of the mind, body, spirit and community in its pursuit of wellness and disease prevention for patients. The Integrative Medicine Society (formerly Ars Medica) aims to explore this field to learn how we, as future physicians, can use a holistic and broad spectrum of care to more fully address the needs of our patients and work on the root causes of disease. Come learn about the future of medicine with our Lunchtime Talks, wellness workshops, and community engagement. Joining us will provide you with many hands-on learning opportunities as well as exposure to Integrative Medicine faculty who can provide career advice, mentorship, shadowing experience, and research opportunities. We can’t wait to meet you!
