NCCIH Director’s Message
April 27, 2020
Even as we continue to face the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are actively planning for the future of NCCIH’s research enterprise. As we launch our year-long effort to develop a new strategic plan that will guide NCCIH’s research over the next 5 years (2021-2026), the chance to strengthen a consideration of “whole person” health with research on multimodal approaches to care has been on my mind. I had the opportunity to launch the discussion of this topic during our recent webinar, and it was a terrific opportunity to elicit input, perspectives, and questions from stakeholders whom we hope will continue to weigh in during our strategic planning process this year.
