Osher Collaborative Forum: Outlooks, Opinions and Opportunities
Peter Wayne, PhD, has been appointed to the role of director of the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Dr. Wayne has been engaged with the Osher Center from its establishment in 2001 and has played a critical role in its development over the past two decades.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created an atmosphere of uncertainty and isolation. Many are focusing on building a healthy lifestyle as a way to cope with this. Because Integrative Medicine emphasizes the promotion of wellbeing overall, Osher Collaborative members are well-positioned to provide support and resources to their patients and communities.
