ACHS will be hosting a panel at the conference: Students Building Stronger Futures for Communities with Integrative Health and Sustainability Practices | March 3, 1:15-2:30pm

This panel highlights three students’ academic and professional experiences developing integrative health skill sets with sustainable practices at American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS). Panelists frame their discussion through examples of community and business-building in the realm of integrative health with a specific commitment to sustainable practices and principles.  Faculty moderators will place these stories in the context of curriculum and community involvement as exists within the ACHS mission and programs across the institution. The panel will offer takeaways on how a curriculum can prepare students to recognize and make decisions based upon the interconnectedness that exists between organizational actions and the financial, environmental, and social well-being of local and global communities.
