Maiers Presents on Integrative Healthcare Providers and Public Health Crises

As part of their 150th anniversary celebration, the American Public Health Association (APHA) hosted a virtual webinar on the role of integrative, complementary and traditional health providers in public health crises. Michele Maiers, DC, PhD, MPH spoke on a panel of experts about how to ensure that the skills and strengths of ICTHP providers are better utilized during future pandemics.
This webinar built upon a RAND report, Incorporating Complementary and Integrative Health Providers in the Public Health Pandemic Response, to which Dr. Maiers contributed.
The COVID-19 pandemic shone a light on the limitations of the public health infrastructure in the United States. Integrative, Complimentary and Traditional Health Practices (ICTHP) providers were an underutilized resource in the fight against the pandemic.
