Bridget Bongaard, MD
Integrative Practitioners - Next Meetup Speaker
Bridget Bongaard, MD, Director of CMC Northeast Internal & Integrative Medicine Center, Concord, NC
I am absolutely thrilled and excited to have my wonderful friend, mentor, & pioneer of integrative medicine speaking at our next gathering. Dr. Bongaard was one of the first doctors in Charlotte to train with Andrew Weil, MD. She has bee paving the way for the rest of us ever since. She has developed and implemented many integrative modalities into various departments through-out the hospital, including aromatherapy, therapeutic touch, and clinical hypnosis, to name just a few.
She has created an incredible team of practitioners and has a massage therapist and acupuncturist right in her office.
Dr. Bongaard will talk about:
· Her journey into integrative medicine and energy healing
· Insight into how she has been able to influence the hospital to adopt so many integrative therapies
· She will share how she uses her own energy in a healing way with each patient encounter, with staff, and with hospital administration
· How she has used research based methods to implement some integrative modalities with the surgeons & some of their post-operative patients
Dr. Bongaard's driving force has always been striving for what’s best for patient care and in doing this, she has paved the way for much collaboration & integration of allopathic and non-allopathic practitioners.
