Join the Integrative Health Movement!
The Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine (AIHM) is a global interprofessional integrative health association working to transform health care – body, mind, spirit, community, & planet. AIHM has been the leading professional organization for the holistic and integrative community since the founding organization’s formation in 1978. We are creating health and wellness on a global scale through education, collaboration, and building a global movement.
With the recent merger of The Academic Collaborative of Integrative Health, we have combined forces with the most important organizations and pioneers of the integrative health movement for greater impact.
Whether through our annual People, Planet, Purpose Conference, which is the only integrative health conference that has made climate health a priority, our free weekly Wellness Webinars, our extensive ACIH council resources, our world-renowned Fellowship in Integrative Health & Medicine, our AIHM global chapter networks, our many projects of ACIH like the NAM forum, and our advocacy initiatives and partners, we are dedicated to serving as a platform for all healthcare providers who recognize that health is more than the absence of disease and is closely intertwined with the health of our communities and the planet.
The time has come for those of us in the healing professions to take a stand, to focus our energies on creating health, preventing illness and promoting wellness together. We need everyone’s voice represented in this global, heart-centered movement to transform healthcare!
A Statement on COVID-19 and Treatments on behalf of AIHM Board of Directors
At AIHM we believe in treating the whole person: body, mind, emotions and spirit. We honor the many Global Healing Traditions and believe that creating health requires a multi-disciplinary approach. We also believe in evidence-based health and medicine and have a vested interest in public health for all. We welcome the release of the COVID-19 vaccines as one opportunity to reduce mortality, suffering and the sometimes, long-term illness caused by COVID-19, and we will continue to monitor the science and CDC recommendations closely.
We plan to continue with COVID-19 continuing education to keep our community updated about the latest research and also integrative treatment strategies by offering evidence-based education like our upcoming March virtual event, Hope, Resilience & Healing in the Covid-19 Era. We strongly recommend following the public health measures of face mask wearing, hand washing and social distancing. Our current public health crisis has highlighted health disparities and the need for a Holistic Integrative Health and Medicine approach to disease prevention and health creation.
In short, this is our work.
At AIHM we support and direct our members and clinicians to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for up-to-date information, guidelines and recommendations. And we will continue to offer education in integrative approaches to COVID-19, including health disparities, integrative prevention and treatment, and the latest information on vaccines.
