Osher Collaborative at ICIMH 2018


Nearly 50 members of the Osher Collaborative attended the 2018 International Congress on Integrative Medicine and Health, representing all 6 of our United States based Osher Centers.

Almost all attendees were presenters – including Collaborative panels, plenary keynotes, and many group and individual sessions (see attachment for full listing of Collaborative presentations: 2018 ICIMH Osher Collaborative Presentations). 

Rick Hecht, Research Director of the UCSF Osher Center now serves as the chair of the Consortium (Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine and Health).  Osher Collaborative members engaged in programs and community conversations across Osher Centers and within the international movement on the theme of “Collaboration in Action: Advancing integrative Health, through Research, Education, Clinical Practice and Policy.”
