New Peer-Reviewed Medical Journal Launched

Nov 17, 2015, 08:00 ET from ACIM

DALLAS, Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Academy of Comprehensive Integrative Medicine ("ACIM") announces the launch of the Journal of Comprehensive Integrative Medicine ("JCIM"), a new peer-reviewed medical journal.  JCIM is dedicated to exploring the multifaceted and multi-disciplined world of medicine.  Throughout history the pioneers of medicine have often initially been held to scorn and rejection.  Over time these pioneers have been proven right.  What we do know is that the medicine of today will not be the medicine of tomorrow.  JCIM will endeavor to bring new ideas, while reassessing established practices and concepts from today's most innovative thought-leaders.

"For years I've wanted a peer-reviewed journal that emphasizes the diversity of integrative medicine and gives everyone involved in healing a voice to share their work and success.  We now have that in JCIM!" 

William Lee Cowden, MD, MD(H), Chairman of ACIM's Scientific Advisory Board

JCIM's distinguished Editorial Board is led by C. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD as the Editor-in-Chief.

Additional Editorial Board Members include:
