Founded in 2014, the Center for Wellness Leadership (CWL) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization providing communities with educational resources and research to achieve optimal wellbeing through Complementary, Alternative and Integrative Medicine.
Mission and Values .
What we do
Grants & Funding.
In fulfilment of its mission to educate the public and medical community about alternative and natural medicine, the Center for Wellness Leadership conducts research about those topics and make grants to other tax-exempt organizations in support of this. CWL also accept funds from extramural sponsors for the conduct of research, training and public health projects.
All proposals for such shall be made in the name of CWL and all sponsored projects are likewise accepted or executed in the name of CWL. All grant applications submitted on behalf of CWL shall be approved by the Board of Directors and its medical advisory board.
Integrative Health, Complementary and Alternative Medicine represent a number of disciplines and sciences. Before adding information to the inventory and database, or promoting various practices, it is important to ensure that the information about its use is reliable. CWL through the Advisory Board will review the relative strength of the evidence supporting the use of specific forms of complementary and alternative medicine and attach a scale on the inventory/database reflecting that strength. As funds allow, CWL will sponsor expert research into science. (NB : It is not the intended role of the Advisory Board to provide medical or other advice to CWL’s members.)
