Experts in integrative medicine, nutrition, humanism, non-violent communication, health policy, and public health will lead didactic and experiential workshops throughout the month. Students will also participate in a community service project as a way to synthesize and act upon core aspects of the curriculum in the surrounding community. The faculty who participate in this rotation come from institutions from around the county, including the University of California-San Francisco, University of Minnesota, University of Florida, as well as core integrative medicine faculty from the University of Wisconsin.
