Bastyr University's Jane Guiltinan, dean of the School of Naturopathic Medicine, was one of six doctors just named to the National Advisory Council for Complementary and Alternative Medicine by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), part of the National Institutes of Health.
“It is an exciting honor to be a member of the advisory council. I look forward to participating as a representative of naturopathic medicine as NCCAM considers how best to allocate funding for research in the area of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM),” said Dr. Guiltinan from Bethesda, Md., where she attended her first advisory council meeting. “Research on CAM will lead to new knowledge that can help people make informed decisions about their health care, and assist policymakers on the integration of CAM practices and professionals into the health-care system.”
