About the Series
The Laura Mann Integrative Healthcare Lecture Series brings leaders in integrative health care together to share best practices and current research and innovations in the field. We often hold our lectures during the University of Vermont Medical Center's Grand Rounds so that our visiting professors meet with faculty, staff, students, hospital administration and leadership from the university and hospital.
Sessions are held in the UVM Medical Center Davis Auditorium from 8-9 a.m. unless otherwise noted.
