Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Building on the continuing growth in this important field, I am delighted to announce a new Special Edition in Pediatric Integrative Medicine. The purpose of this edition is to showcase review articles demonstrating progress and state-of-the art programs and clinical applications by colleagues working nationally and internationally to improve health care for children.

Rarely have interprofessional collaboration and commitment to the health and wellbeing of our youngest generation been more important as we collectively process the challenges of the past year.  Please contribute your ideas and expertise with the goal of educating and inspiring colleagues.

In-depth high-level review articles are sought from a well-recognized and well-established research community on topics from state-of-the-art knowledge to new advances and trends, including but not limited to the following:

prevention, nutrition, movement and physical activity, stress management, mental health, environmental health, wellbeing in school and the range of applications of pediatric integrative medicine in pediatric clinical conditions will be considered.
