Innovative Thinking and Action to Transform Health
Despite great advances in medical knowledge and technology, chronic disease affects one in three Americans, leads to 70 percent of U.S. deaths, and accounts for 75 percent of health care costs. The United States spends twice as much as other modern nations on health care, yet the health of Americans is poorer and our lifespans are shorter.

To provide an environment for innovative thinking and action that will help to reverse this crisis, Brian Berman, MD, founded the Institute for Integrative Health in 2007. A charitable nonprofit organization, the Institute aims to create a wellness and medical model to shift our society’s focus from managing disease to promoting lifelong health.

Valuing the power of interdisciplinary collaboration, we pursue bold ideas that challenge the status quo and use cutting-edge science to understand the dynamic processes that affect our well-being. We incorporate this insight into actionable programs for individuals and communities.

The Institute’s vision builds on the transformational work of many in the field of integrative medicine and emanates from Dr. Berman’s more than 20 years of experience as a National Institutes of Health-funded researcher and director of the University of Maryland Center for Integrative Medicine.
