"Join NCCIH and our director, Dr. Helene Langevin, as we launch NCCIH’s strategic planning process for the next 5-year plan (2021–2026). We will kick off this year-long process with a webinar for the complementary and integrative health community on the topic of 'Whole Person Health.' Dr. Langevin will share her thoughts on this topic, which considers the whole person and the relationships among numerous factors, including biologic, environmental, behavioral, mental, and social factors, in determining health. She will also focus on how this concept fits into and expands upon NCCIH’s current strategic plan and may serve as a way to inform our strategic planning and future research directions.
"Input gathered as a result of this event will feed into the NCCIH strategic planning process being led by Ms. Mary Beth Kester, Director of the NCCIH Office of Policy, Planning, and Evaluation.
"Dr. Langevin presented initial thoughts on this topic at the afternoon session of the September 20, 2019, NCCIH Advisory Council meeting."
