Session Nine: Integrative Medicine in Occupational Medicine

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm (ET)

JUNE 26, 2014 Meharry Medical College

Webinar Overview

Integrative medicine is understood to be a welcomed addition to the conventional modalities available for ensuring optimal health.  One area that can be overlooked is health within a workplace.  There are numerous opportunities to incorporate integrative therapies into the occupational setting.  Our talk aims to provide information on the ability of various corporations to include integrative approaches for well-rounded programs for their employees.  It highlights modifiable root contributors to employer medical costs and evaluates the benefits of integrative medicine approaches to employee health cost containment.  The inclusion of these programs will also be examined for improvement in employee health and work environment.  We will also share information on how we are training our occupational medicine residents to be more aware of these therapies for potential future use.
