Lemuel Shattuck Hospital – Whole Health Education Internship Pilot Program

Lemuel Shattuck Hospital“Our clinic at the Lemuel Shattuck Hospital was for poor and chronically ill patients who wanted to deal with refractory pain conditions. They were a difficult patient population. Between 1980 and 1989, each year we placed at least one or two interns from NESWHE [now the National Institute of Whole Health] to perform health education counseling with our clients. These interns were always well educated, sensitive, willing to work hard and able to re-moralize and spark renewed interest in health and well-being in our difficult patients.”

“We came to rely on these placements because their enthusiasm for helping was a critical component of our clinical work to re-direct our patients towards a sense of self-help and self-reliance. On all levels, our relationships with NESWHE [now the National Institute of Whole Health] and its students was professional and of great value to our program.”
