Health, Healing, and Flourishing

How can we help both providers and patients move from healing to flourishing, inside and outside the family doctor’s office? What are the core values of family and community medicine? What does healing look like from a patient’s point of view? How can light and the biofield therapies produce therapeutic effects? What is the impact of programs and policies on upstream drivers of health? These are the types of questions we’re asking as we examine ways to make primary care more comprehensive for both health practitioners and patients and to better understand the healing process. As we move from health to healing to flourishing, we’re also helping medical professionals identify mental health issues and offering evidence-based interventions to promote thriving and post-traumatic growth.
