White House Commission on
Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy

About the Commission
A growing number of Americans are using alternative approaches to health promotion and medical treatment. People are looking to health care providers to treat the whole person, not only illness. Because of public interest in and use of unconventional health care, the President established the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy. Executive Order 13147 authorizing the Commission was issued on March 7, 2000.
The Commission, which is composed of individuals knowledgeable in both conventional and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), has been charged with addressing:
    Research on CAM practices and products
    Delivery of and public access to CAM services
    Dissemination of reliable information on CAM to health care providers and the general public
    Appropriate licensing, education, and training of CAM health care practioners
The Commission's recommendations on public policy and legislation are due to the President through the Secretary of Health and Human Services in March 2002.
