About this Series
The Integrative Health Journal Club and Seminar Series is a collaboration between the UCSD Center of Excellence for Research and Training in Integrative Health (CERT-IH), the UCSD Center for Integrative Medicine (CIM), and the Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI) that offers a forum for academics, researchers, clinicians, students, and community members to discuss empirical scientific findings and theoretical frameworks in the field of complementary and integrative medicine (IM). We will accomplish this through monthly meetings that focus either on recent peer-reviewed literature in IM, or by providing an opportunity for researchers and practitioners in IM to share their expertise and dialogue with group members.
