Join us at our new monthly Integrative Medicine Grand Rounds Series at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston

These gatherings are open to both conventional and integrative medicine researchers, clinicians, and educators from across Boston. The aim of the series is to support inter-disciplinary learning and discuss the application of integrative medicine therapies.

The format includes pre-selected discussants comprising a panel, audience Q&A, and may include the presentation of a patient. Each month a different institution from across Harvard and Greater Boston will be invited to give a clinical case presentation.
