About Integrative Medicine
Integrative Medicine is a broad field that encompasses the philosophy of how we care for patients, emphasizes lifestyle and prevention, and includes a broad range of evidence-informed approaches from both conventional and complementary medicine disciplines. Northwestern is proud to be a leader in discovery and education in this emerging area of medicine. Learn more about the purpose and practices involved via our About Integrative Medicine section.
