“At the heart of holism is an understanding of connection,” says AHMA President Molly Roberts, MD, “This conference will present relevant evidence-based models of care while focusing on collaboration, which is key to bringing our collective resources together for the greater good of the patient and society.”

The conference will focus on collaborative models of care within and among clinics, collaborative views such as multi-pronged, team approaches to care, research models such as case studies and the role of mindfulness in creating connection within.
