Chiropractic accrediting agency calls for public comments on residency standards

Consortium announces Patty Wilder as new executive director, replacing Janet Polli

In a July 13, 2013 message to members, Ben Kligler, MD, MPH, chair, and Margaret Chesney, PhD, vice-chair, of the Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine (CAHCIM) announced “with mixed emotions” that the consortium’s executive director of four years, Janet Polli, is “transitioning” out as she works on her MBA. Polli is credited with being “particularly instrumental in the Consortium’s very important strategic planning process and has guided us as the membership of the Consortium grew by over 33%.” Serving as interim executive director is Patty Wilder. Wilder’s background includes more than 35 years of experience in the nonprofit sector. Wilder is said to have “a long interest and passion around integrative medicine and is a Spring Forest Qi Gong practitioner.”
