At Pacific Pearl, for which the executive director is Rauni King, RN, Guarneri has surrounded herself with three naturopathic medical doctors, a chiropractor, and additional integrative medical doctors. She is senior medical adviser for the splashy 20,000 square foot Atlantic Health initiative, for which $6-million has been raised by prime benefactor Ray Chambers. Meantime, Guarneri is the founding president of the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine (see related story, this Round-up). A release on the Chambers Center is here.

From Google Alerts: Links to Integrative Medicine in Health Systems and Communities from October 2014

Tremendous level of news and developments. This is in part due to my use of a broader inclusion net for what I am selecting. At the same time, the activity level suggests that those who believe the movement is headed toward a “tipping point” may have something. Here are 25 selections related to hospitals and medical organizations and integrative medicine, 10 from alternative and integrative medicine in community non-system practices and media, and 25 developments from around the world for October 2014.
