We are at an unprecedented time in medical history with the COVID-19 pandemic. The frontlines of care include physicians and care providers of all backgrounds, including allopathic, complementary and integrative medicine. It is imperative that physicians share their knowledge with one another on the interventions being used to build immune resilience, support those infected at home and in hospital, as well as those who recover and are in rehabilitative care. This is why Ryan Bradley, ND, MPH and a set of global collaborators have created the Traditional, Complementary and Integrative Health and Medicine COVID-19 Support Registry, which is hosted on a secure sever at the HelfGott Research Institute, at the National University of Natural Medicine.
The registry has received Institute of Review Board approval by Distribution of this registry has been approved by the Institute of Review Board (IRB) of the National University of Natural Medicine. Contributions to this registry have been made by researchers at the National University of Natural Medicine, the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, the University of Sydney, and the University of Technology, Sydney. The registry is open to physicians all over the world.
