Under his leadership, the Program in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona was created as a two-year fellowship in 1997.

Weil is called “the guru of alternative medicine” on one of the covers of his books. On his website (www.drweil.com), which records over two and a half million hits a month, he is called “America’s most trusted medical expert.” A recent cover of Time Magazine announced that “medicine man Dr. Andrew Weil has made New Age remedies popular.” In the accompanying story, Time tells us that “millions of Americans swear by his medical advice.” He is undoubtedly one of the most important and articulate leaders in the field of health and healing and a pioneer in transforming the current medical view toward one more open to whole person healing.” ( www.healingcancer.info ) To read more, please click here.
