The LHOC initiative has afforded me the opportunity as a Health Scholar to work side by side with health professionals aiming to redefine the way community clinics educate and heal patients suffering from chronic health issues The incorporation of integrative health, and its encompassing modalities, ensures that going forward healthcare models will need to address not only the physical ailments of the underserved but, also the mental and social roadblocks that allow chronic illness to persist in the face of traditional allopathic treatments.
“The LiveHealthy OC Initiative is groundbreaking and unprecedented. While our clinics are not the first to incorporate integrative health modalities into their model of care, we are the first to do so with this magnitude through a network of clinics that have the potential to touch over 33,000 patients from our community.”

"I have been coming to the group medical visits five months, and 32 years living with diabetes. For the first time, I now understand much more what insulin is and how it functions in my body. I like to share with others how I have been able to reduce my A1C from 11.5% to 9% in the past year."
“Integrative Health is powerful 21st century whole person medicine. By combining the most effective and safest therapeutic approaches from modern conventional medicine with complementary and alternative healing practices to address all factors that influence illness, health and wellness, it represents the best medical care for individuals and families, and the most potent, cost-effective care for our health system."
