Donor-sponsored research provides seed funding for promising ideas that can lead to evidence-based treatments not widely supported by the federal government and insurance companies. Additionally, our research gives us an opportunity to future integrative practitioners, current health professionals, and the community.
Innovative, Personalized Treatment
Every patient who seeks care at the Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute receives an individual treatment plan designed to restore health and quality of life. By offering new integrative programs that pave the way to transforming healthcare, the Institute continues to lead patients on a path of wellness and disease prevention.
Help Us Grow
Help Us Grow Wishlist
The Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute depends on support from individual donors, family foundations, and corporations to conduct vital research and provide clinical services.
While technology opens new avenues for treatments, it also resents new challenges. Exploring and testing a new idea can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. However, donor funding facilitates research into promising ideas that can lead to innovative care.
The personal and financial support we receive from donors in our community enables us to increase the number and diversity of patients treated as well as expand our outreach efforts in Orange County.
You can help further the growth of the Samueli Institute by supporting these areas of need:
Expansion of Clinical Services$20,000-$100,000
Bring the Institute’s clinical services to other parts of Orange County. Help equip and partially underwrite a new clinic location during its ﬁrst two years of operation. Clinic becomes self-sustaining after two years.
Fund one year of a faculty level position to expand the center's educational programming and develop new course content regarding evidence-based integrative practices or fund a one-year colloquium series to bring experts in the ﬁeld of integrative health for campus seminars.
Seed Funding for Grants$30,000- $50,000
Establish a fund that offers seed monies to faculty with an interest in pursuing research in integrative medicine while they seek major national funding grants from NIH and other sources.
Student Research Fellowships$10,000- $50,000
Provide funds for graduate students to work in the laboratory of one of the Institute’s researchers to increase their knowledge of the scientific research ongoing in the field of integrative medicine.
The research done at the Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute has centered on traditional Chinese medicine. This includes studies of acupuncture, herbals, qigong and Tai Chi. All of our research efforts are utilized to strengthen our clinical protocols and to expand the knowledge of medical students and the community.
From Our Community
“I’ve been a proponent of integrative medicine for 15 years. Luckily for me, in California, I found the Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute and it has been my saving grace.”
From Our Community
“Dr. Demehri and her team at the Samueli Institute have been the ONLY doctors to offer any kind of treatment or support for such a rare blood disorder as Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (aHUS). It is my belief that with this kind of continued care, we will cure this illness and pave the way for other patients. I am living proof!”
