Dear Friend,

Most chronic disease seen in primary care can be prevented or even improved by addressing a patient’s underlying social and behavioral determinants of health – lifestyle, social and emotional factors, economic and resource barriers and mental and spiritual drivers. Yet these determinants are poorly managed in medicine. The COVID pandemic has highlighted even further the need to enhance our ability to address chronic disease and its risks. Those dying of COVID are often the same who die of common chronic illnesses such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and mental health conditions; and, disproportionately affect the elderly, minorities, the poor and people of color. We need to enhance our ability to address these root causes of chronic disease and COVID impact more effectively. We call this enhancement person-centered integrative health care.

NEW LEARNING GROUP ANNOUNCED

I am pleased to share that the Samueli Foundation is working with the Family Medicine Education Consortium (FMEC) on a nine-month learning collaborative designed to improve the delivery of person-centered integrative health practices into routine primary care.

We are inviting family medicine residencies, FQHCs, DPC practices and other clinics and health systems to join us. Participants will have the opportunity to improve their integrative health services, learn from other clinics, have access to tools, experts, and educational resources in integrative health and to engage in practice improvement and evaluation of their programs in integrative health.

You can learn more and ask questions by joining us for a virtual Q&A information session on August 25 or visiting the FMEC website which shows application information, requirements for participation and learning objectives. A recording of our past info session is available here.

Be well,
Dr. Wayne Jonas
