From Google Alerts: Links to Integrative Medicine in Health Systems and Communities from July 2013

This monthly report from the Integrator includes 17 segments from Google Alerts on integrative medicine developments in health systems plus 12 from the community, for July 6, 2013-July 28, 2013. These came via requests for “integrative medicine,” “integrative oncology,” “alternative medicine” and “complementary and alternative medicine.” The most significant media pick-up during the month was the Kaiser Health News feature, although the focus was on “alternative medicine” rather than “integrative medicine.” Here is the MedPage link, WebMD and here the Denver Post, for instance. The Bravenet publication based on a study of integrative pain was also widely picked-up (see here and here and here, among others). Meantime, Paul Offit, MD’s anti-CAIM book continues to pick up significant media, including this in the Washington Post and this rejoinder in the LA Times from the Council for Responsible Nutrition.
