Integrative Medicine Philanthropic Movement into Mainstream Medicine--want to learn more?

[original post was 5/9/2017.  This resource collection was part of a fundraiser package we had in our spring 2017 fundraiser, called "Friend of Integrative Medicine".  Links to recommended reading updated 11.30.2018. post revised 3.5.2018.]

If you are interested in the movement of integrative medicine into mainstream medicine from at least one of these perspectives:
  • as a healthcare consumer/patient 
  • as a healthcare advocate
  • as a healthcare practitioner
  • as a healthcare administrator
  • as a philanthropist 

I recommend the following introductory resources for perusing:
  1. a copy of the book, The Bravewell Story:  how a small community of philanthropists made a big difference in healthcare by Bonnie Horrigan
  2. the DVD documentary, Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare
  3. the book, The Spark in the Machine:  how the science of acupuncture explains the mysteries of Western Medicine by Daniel Keown
