The ModernHCP Thought Leader Series highlights influential healthcare professionals who have made significant contributions to the advancement of integrative medicine.  Often going against the grain of conventional theories, these individuals have followed their own path and in the process have helped develop a more effective, patient centered approach to the most pressing health concerns of our time.  The positive outcomes speak for themselves.

We hope these introductions and the information provided will help you in your practice and your continued professional development.  Many of the Thought Leaders are associated with educational groups where you can receive training and connect with other like minded healthcare professionals.

As always, we encourage you to dig deeper and we hope our site makes that process a little easier for you.
