Dr. Ben Kligler: Alternative medicine goes mainstream

Dr Ben Kligler is a pioneer in the field of integrative health and medicine – sometimes referred as complementary and alternative medicine. Last year, he was named the founding National Director to leading integrative health strategy at the Coordinating Center for Integrative Health of the U.S. Veterans Administration. In his new position, Kligler, a family medicine doctor, will help to significantly expand veterans’ access to a range of integrative health services. Kligler discusses the mainstreaming of what was once called alternative medicine, and the promise it offers. (July 5, 2017 broadcast)
