1)Explore a more holistic approach to medicine, one that is patient centered and inclusive of all aspect that affect health and healing.  We aim to explore the relationship between allopathic medicine and other healing practices such as homeopathic treatments, naturopathy, chiropraction, acupuncture, musical therapy, etc.

2)Learn and educate about natural remedies, whether evidence based or non-evidence based, from various cultural groups.  We believe this will facilitate cultural competency and hence help us better serve the diverse patient population of Boston Medical Center.
