We're fortunate enough to have resources galore for healthcare professionals in Austin, particularly in the integrative realm. These are the groups that we know about that are in and around Austin. Go to a meeting or two and see if you like what you see. Trying something new, getting out of our comfort zone, exploring something different, is where the magic happens. Community, collaboration and connection as medicine, that's how we're going to heal our healthcare system.
