Certificate in Complementary and Integrative Health
Today's health care system is evolving in its approach to the health and care of a culturally and ethnically diverse client population. In the United States, the aging population, an increasing public awareness of major risk factors contributing to chronic illness, and the public's growing desire for alternative health care options are just a few of the factors behind the expanding interest in complementary and integrative health.
The demand for knowledgeable providers to meet the needs of this population is dramatically increasing, resulting in the development of new jobs and the creation of new services. To gain a broad understanding of these therapies and to stay current with emerging trends, health professionals who work with diverse populations will need continuing professional education. The ability to understand the many types of therapies available is essential to providing safe, effective care in any setting.
