Health Creation: Moving Beyond Disease Management

How should we define health? Is it simply the absence of disease? Or is it more, including a person’s whole physical, mental, and social well-being?

At Northwestern Health Sciences University, we educate healthcare professionals around the tenets of whole-person health and integrative care. Learn more about health creation in this policy statement from Northwestern Health Sciences University and conversations from members of our university community!
