Complementary and Integrative Medicine: Where the Rubber Meets the Road


July 21 thru 23

Wisconsin Dells, WI


The explosive growth of Complementary and Integrative Medicine has brought both opportunities and challenges to patients and consumers.   Patients are confronted with a bewildering array of promises and claims that seems to expand every day.  This presents a unique challenge to physicians and other health care professionals tasked with helping their patients make informed healthcare decisions.   


Researchers and clinicians from Mayo Clinic Arizona and Rochester have collaborated to develop the CME course Complementary and Integrative Medicine: Where the Rubber Meets the Road to provide a general working knowledge of Complementary and Integrative Medicine, familiarity with some of the most common therapies and, most importantly, practical applications of these therapies for patients with relevant diseases and conditions. Speakers include Amit Sood, MD, and Kathi J. Kemper, MD, MPH.
