Only the beginning…
Now in our 10th year, our family has grown to 9 programs in select hospitals across the country. Most hospitals raise money to supplement our grants. We are continually striving to add more programs to more hospitals while spreading awareness of the power of integrative medicine. Meet our current 9 programs.
