Friday & Saturday, September 4–6, 2014
NCNM Campus

NCNM is pleased to host this conference (previously held in California), on our Portland campus. NCNM and Integrative Medicine for the Underserved (IM4U) will offer the IM4Us 4th Annual Conference available through NCNM as a live online webinar! 

Integrative medicine is often seen in our culture to be for the wealthy, involving expensive supplements and treatments that low-income patients cannot afford. Most of the educational opportunities that currently exist on this topic are geared towards clinicians in private practice with patients who are willing and able to spend money on such treatments. The reality is that many integrative treatments are not only more effective but also more cost-efficient, and many community clinics and other practices are already using these strategies with underserved populations.

This conference will discuss affordable integrative approaches to common acute and chronic diseases, share evidence-based best practices regarding integrative approaches to health, discuss unique ways to utilize group medical visits, and provide a like-minded community base for activism around integrative medicine for underserved populations. In addition, this conference attempts to cross disciplines to unite the work already being done in various communities across the nation.

Educational Objectives for Conference

  • Provide practical information to increase the capacity of working clinicians of diverse disciplines and backgrounds to provide integrative medicine and lifestyle counseling to underserved communities
  • Connect and foster community among clinicians across disciplines with an interest in integrative medicine for the underserved
  • Highlight existing sustainable models and structures of practice in integrative medicine for the underserved
  • Build a North American movement for Integrative Medicine for the Underserved
  • Help shift the paradigm in health care towards one of wellness, prevention, patient empowerment, and self-care.
