THE MARCUS INSTITUTE OF INTEGRATIVE HEALTH / CHARLES E. SCHMIDT COLLEGE OF MEDICINE
VISION: To create access to excellence for the next generation of nurses
SUPPORT: The Marcus Foundation
Bolstered by $4 million in grants from the Marcus Foundation, FAU’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine launched the Marcus Institute of Integrative Health in Boca Raton.
The grants will support the College in launching innovative clinical and educational integrative health programs to meet the growing interest in integrative health by both patients and students. The center is now open and offers a variety of clinical services. The grants will also enable the College to provide its medical students with enhanced educational offerings in nutrition and mindfulness, as well as offer opportunities for healthcare professionals to enhance their knowledge of integrated medicine.
“I am delighted to support these clinical and educational innovations as part of FAU’s academically focused and accessible approach to integrative health,” said Bernard Marcus, co-founder of The Home Depot and Chairman of The Marcus Foundation.
