The Nutrition, Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCAM) student group at UCLA is founded upon the belief that awareness and understanding of integrative medicine and health is essential to building a healthier and more prosperous society. NCAM is focused on the exploration of topics in nutrition, complementary and alternative medicine, and other related areas. Our purpose is to spread awareness and understanding of these topics, including their basic concepts, applications, and research-based evidence. We expose students to different concepts and ideologies in medicine and healthy living in an interactive environment. We strive to build a community of students interested in these topics and to connect that community with networks of professionals in the field of nutrition, wellness, health education, and medicine.
