Health & Wellness

Our Vision

Medical schools emphasize diagnosis, technology, and scientific treatments of the body. Rarely do medical schools offer courses that integrate the mind and body, spirituality and medicine, or nutrition and prevention. The Simms/Mann Institute believes that medicine is not enough.
