We have forged strategic partnerships with healthcare systems and health plans to broaden our reach. We are a founding member of the Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine and we regularly collaborate with community groups of all kinds to further our discovery and engagement efforts.

In addition, the Center works with a variety of clients ranging from small businesses to clinics and health systems to Fortune 500 companies, providing consultations, products and services in the areas of stress reduction, optimal healing environments, arts in healing, care model innovation, leadership development and integrative therapies and healing practices. Inspired by design-thinking principles, our approach in working with clients is to build capacity, as well as sustainability, by actively engaging them at every stage of our process. This partnership produces effective outcomes that are “co-created” and tailored to their unique needs.

"Now more than ever, employers are highly focused on employee mental health and wellbeing as they adjust to the pandemic, economic disruption, and heightened focus on the impact of racial and societal issues.” - Ellen Kelsay, President and CEO of the Business Group on Health.
