Date:1/27/2009

cine, New Haven, Conn.
  • William Novelli, CEO, AARP, Washington, D.C.
  • Dean Ornish, M.D., founder and president, Preventive Medicine Research Institute, San Francisco
  • Mehmet Oz, M.D., vice chair and professor of surgery, Columbia University, New York City
  • Ellen Stovall, president and CEO, National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship, Washington, D.C.

    The summit will provide vital information in the context of discussions on the transformation of the U.S. health care system. Topics will include: patient-centered care, continuity of care, chronic disease prevention and management, the scientific basis for the elements of integrative medicine, economic implications and financing reform, and mind-body relationships and health.

    "Interest in the summit has been intense," Fineberg noted. "Approximately 500 participants have already registered to attend, which indicates this topic is attracting a high level of attention from various stakeholders and organizations."

    Support for the summit has been provided by the Bravewell Collaborative, an operating foundation of leading philanthropists dedicated to transforming the culture and delivery of health care. Bravewell, along with the Prince's Foundation for Integrated Health, a London-based nonprofit that champions an integrated approach to health, and AARP, the U.S. nonprofit membership organization for people age 50 and older, have formed an international alliance in support of the summit and ongoing activities related to the advancement of integrative medicine.
