Project Healing Hive's 

Advocacy Efforts for cam

Nearly 40% of adults in the U.S. use some form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapy, including dietary supplements. Although the federal government, academia, and the private sector have begun to offer some support for CAM education, research, and integration with conventional medicine, the gaps and barriers in the accessibility to complementary therapies remains another problem. Project Healing Hive is working with local, state, and federal offices advocating for the integration of complementary therapies offered in community-based and trauma-informed settings. 

 

Project Healing Hive is also part of The No Pain Act movement which was signed into law on 12/29/22. This law will allow individuals to choose a non-opioid for out-patient post-surgery pain management that is covered by insurance companies.  Our advocacy efforts are meant to create autonomy and accessibility to complementary and alternative therapies. Will you join us?
