Pediatric Integrative Health: Approaches to Optimizing "Whole Child" Wellness

Sep 21, 2010

Children’s integrative health is a holistic approach to wellness that examines the context—the ecology—in which optimal health and wellness can be achieved. Increasingly, parents, nurses, pediatricians and others in the other healthcare sector are trying to navigate the field of environmental health to determine what conditions might best promote healthy child development.

On September 21, 2010, CHE and three leaders in the pediatric integrative health field discussed the latest in “ecological” medicine and emerging science regarding specific approaches to creating optimal environments for children to develop. Please note that these speakers will also be presenting at upcoming symposium, “Children First: Promoting Ecological Health for the Whole Child”, to be held October 1, 2010 in San Francisco. For more information, please see: http://www.healthandenvironment.org/news/conference

Featured speakers included:

  • Lawrence Rosen, MD, Founder, Whole Child Center
  • David Becker, MD, MPH, Assistant Clinical Professor of Pediatrics, University of California-San Francisco
  • Tieraona Low Dog, MD, Director, Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine

The call was moderated by Elise Miller, CHE Director.
