NCCIH Coalition for Whole Person Health

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) Coalition for Whole Person Health is an independent group of nonprofit organizations that is national in scope. These organizations raise awareness about NCCIH and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and how research can inform integrative, interprofessional, patient-centered, and whole person care. They are key stakeholders of NCCIH and serve as the voices of the patients, communities, and professionals for whom NCCIH works.
