Bringing the best of conventional medicine together with the best of evidence-based complementary practices is critically important to improving care and creating an emphasis on promoting wellness. We have been richly blessed with friends and supporters who have made our program activities possible. Almost every critically important success enjoyed by the Program has been built on the foundation of gifts and grants from individuals such as yourself. Some large gifts have helped us fund full, complex studies entirely, while some smaller gifts might have enabled us to conduct just the statistical analysis portion of a project. Every gift played a key and irreplaceable role in allowing us to care more completely for our patients, teach our students and colleagues more effectively, and advance the science more rapidly.
