William Collinge, PhD, MPH, LCSW is a consultant, author, speaker and researcher in the field of integrative health care. He has extensive experience working with people with cancer, fibromyalgia, chronic fague syndrome, HIV/AIDS, and other conditions. He also provides mental health services to Veterans and their families through the VA Patient-Centered Community Care (PC3) and Veterans Choice programs, and the non-profit Returning Veterans Project. He has led workshops and retreats across North America, in Hawaii, New Zealand and the UK, and has a private practice of health-related psychotherapy and mind/body medicine in Eugene, Oregon. William has served as Principal Investigator on eight NIH-funded studies. His latest book is Partners in Healing: Simple Ways to Oer Support, Comfort and Care to a Loved One Facing Illness (Shambhala, 2008).

Dr. Pamela Wible is a family physician born into a family of physicians who warned her not to pursue medicine. She soon discovered why—to heal her patients she first had to heal her profession. Fed up with assembly-line medicine, Dr. Wible held town hall meetings where she invited citizens to design their own ideal clinic. Open since 2005, Wible’s community clinic has inspired Americans to create ideal clinics and hospitals nationwide.

Her innovative model is now taught in medical schools and featured in Harvard School of Public Health’s newest edition of Renegotiating Health Care, a textbook examining major trends with the potential to change the dynamics of health care. Dr. Wible speaks widely on health care delivery and is the bestselling author of Pet Goats & Pap Smears and Physician Suicide Letters—Answered.

Dr. Wible’s blogs have been picked up by major media such as The Washington Post and Time Magazine. She’s delivered 2 TED talks, an award-winning NPR interview, and her work on doctor suicide was the focus of a primetime segment on America Tonight. Dr. Wible most recently reported on New York City’s physician suicide cluster on Dr. Oz and is a subject in the new award-winning documentary, Do No Harm: Exposing The Hippocratic Hoax.
