Integrative Medicine for the Underserved (IM4US)

About IM4US

Integrative Medicine for the Underserved (IM4US) is a fiscally-sponsored project of Tides Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and the nation’s largest fiscal sponsor. IM4US is dedicated to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in health care. Through outreach, education, research, and advocacy, we provide support to a community of diverse health practitioners working with underserved communities.

MISSION STATEMENT

Integrative Medicine for the Underserved is a collaborative, multidisciplinary group of people committed to affordable, accessible integrative health care for all. Through outreach, education, research, and advocacy, we support those dedicated to promoting health in underserved populations. Together we work to shift the current paradigm towards equity, wellness, prevention, patient empowerment, and self-care.

PHILOSOPHY

We believe health care is a right.
We believe Equity is fundamental to health and wellness, and therefore Equity, and efforts to dismantle racism/oppression are foundational to our work as healers/practitioners.
We believe optimal health care focuses on wellness as much as on treating disease.
We believe optimal health care addresses mind, body, and spirit.
We believe that the social determinants of health must be addressed.
We believe in the power of integrating diverse health care modalities and disciplines.
We believe underserved patients and those providing their care need unique kinds of support.
We believe collaboration and sharing improve patient outcomes and inspire providers to remain whole-heartedly engaged in this work.
