"The Center began its work by developing a model for group support and self-care for inner-city (primarily African American and Hispanic) youth in Washington, DC, for people with chronic illness, and for medical students. The Center’s model is now used by 15 medical schools including Georgetown, Michigan, Duke, and Johns Hopkins. And since 1996, the Center has worked to relieve population wide trauma resulting from wars and disaster, in the US and overseas." Dean Ornish is quoted as saying: “The Center for Mind-Body Medicine is doing pioneering work, making the best of the new medicine available to those who need it most.” [1]
