    Samueli Center for Integrative Medicine University of California Irvine AMSA members initiated International Integrative Medicine Day (IIM Day) - January 23 - in 2009 to create time each year for people across the world to celebrate and promote integrative medicine. IIM Day inspires worldwide dialog, education, collaboration, research initiatives and programming about medicine that is patient-centered, holistic, economically and environmentally sustainable, and conscious of integrating different global medical systems. The international IIM Day Team met its intentions by collaborating and advertising with 6 institutions across the United States. The UMDNJ ICAM e-journal printed an article about integrative medicine (IM). The University Of Pittsburgh School of Medicine AMSA chapter collaborated with interest groups to host a mini-conference with 40 attendees. Dr. Mikhail Kogan presented on evidence based IM approaches to geriatrics. Breakout sessions included yoga, salsa and acupuncture. The Oregon Collaborative for Integrative Medicine hosted 100 students from Portland's 4 health professional schools (MD, ND, DC & MSOM) at an IM evening social where students voiced interest in additional networking events. The Dinacharya Institute saw patients on the weekend to celebrate IIM Day. Chicago hosted their sixth annual Integrate Chicago Conference during which 150 medical students, health sciences students, faculty, and health practitioners learned about IM. The infrastructure for maintaining IIM Day now exists with a centralized web page, a dedicated and motivated IIM Day Team, and multiple institutional partners interested in promoting IIM Day annually. Future IIM Day Teams will create an evaluation tool to assess the impact of IIM Day and promote annual events nationally and internationally.

Local Event

    The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine AMSA chapter collaborated with Trader Joe’s, Massage Envy, UPSOM Integrative Health Interest Group, Neuroscience & Medicine Disabilities & Geriatrics AOC to host a mini-conference with over 40 attendees. Attendees included students, community members and UPSOM faculty (researchers, educators and physicians). Keynote speaker Mikhail Kogan MD from George Washington University presented on evidence based IM approaches to geriatrics. Breakout sessions included yoga, salsa and acupuncture.

    Medical students found the mini-conference meaningful and asked the UPSOM Integrative Health Interest Group to mirror the experience on a smaller scale during Second Look 2010 weekend for prospective medical students. The salsa teacher, a first year medical student, was specifically asked to teach during Second Look. Speakers and attendees verbally commented that they felt the event was a success because it introduced them to new concepts and allowed them to mingle with like-minded individuals in a casual but meaningful manner. Participants voiced that there was a stimulating mix of academic and experiential components that enabled the mini-conference to be relevant to all participants.

    Linda Meacci, a yoga teacher in the community, wrote the following email: Hello Ilana,

    Thank you for organizing and hosting the IIM event today. I thoroughly enjoyed the speakers and meeting the attendees. It is a great way to educate one another and bring awareness to the community at large. Hopefully more opportunities like this will manifest.

    I am happy to help get the word out to the yoga community and other circles when such events are happening. Keep me on your email list.

Many thanks-

    Linda Meacci

Evaluation

    This year the IIM Day team focused on creating the infrastructure for IIM Day. The infrastructure for maintaining IIM Day now exists with a centralized web page, a dedicated and motivated IIM Day Team, and multiple institutional partners interested in promoting IIM Day annually. Future goals include collaborating with additional institutions, lobbying local politicians to write proclamations for IIM Day and creating an evaluation tool.

    Currently there is no formal process in place for assessing the success/impact of events. An informal survey to assess events world wide was advertised on the AMSA Humanism in Medicine list serve and on the IIM Day website. There were minimal responses. Please visit http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GJW2HQQ to view the survey.

    The IIM Day team is interested in collaborating with Consortium mentors to create a short and effective evaluation tool that may be used to assess the impact/success of future IIM Days.
