Dr. Lauri Medina: Whole Person Health & New CME Course

In this episode, Dr. Lauri Medina joins the program to discuss her path to integrative health and whole person care as a surgeon in rural Colorado. She always knew there was more to health. As one of the instructors of our new CME Course: Introducing Whole Person Care Into Your Practice, she strongly urges all clinicians and clinical teams to explore the course. She shares how she incorporates the HOPE note and the Personal Health Inventory into her practice using it not only with her patients, but with her whole team. Listen as she describes what she gained by being one of the CME instructors and taking the course herself. “For most of us, we'd like to contribute and make the world a better place, and we know that one of the key components of wellbeing is having a sense of purpose. So if we can re-identify with this sense of purpose and then use the tools that are provided with this course, help use these tools to facilitate this sense of purpose that improves our own wellbeing. Begin by taking the personal health inventory ourselves and sharing it with our team members.”
