Welcome to the Center for Wellness Leadership.

Catherine Cobb - CWL Chair

Integrative medicine is now playing a fundamental role in how we approach optimal health. In a society with a tendency to approach health and healing through pharmacology, new trends include complementary and alternative solutions to stay or become healthy. Nutrition, mind-body medicine, manipulative and body-based practices are emerging and in many cases seeing a resurgence as accessible tools for a better and longer life. At CWL, we are committed to offer tools to inform, offer research and educate professionals about integrating these approaches to health.
