Integrative Health Approach to Services
The staff of all CSUMB Health and Wellness Services departments embrace the concept of "integrative health", by emphasizing the partnership between the student and the health practitioner in strengthening one's overall well-being. Alongside the concept of treatment, the broader concepts of prevention and health promotion are paramount.
