The Program in Integrative Health
The Program in Integrative Health (PIH) was founded in 2004 as a response to Vermont's growing interest and demand for complementary and integrative medicine. In 2006 the PIH joined other academic health centers in the nationally recognized Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine & Health. In 2011 The PIH and the Laura Mann Center (LMC), a local non-profit promoting the benefits of Integrative Health in VT formed a collaboration to develop the Integrative Healthcare Lecture Series.
In 2015, the members of the PIH, senior leadership from UVM College of Nursing and Health Sciences (CNHS), Larner College of Medicine (LCOM), UVM Medical Center (UVMMC) and the Laura Mann Center (LMC) agreed to collaborate and develop UVM Integrative Health. The Laura Mann Center has closed and moved their programs to UVM Integrative Health. Administrative leadership is provided by the College of Nursing and Health Sciences.
We encourage our members to serve as expert academic resources for our colleagues in the use of evidence-based integrative health within our health care system.
