The Teleosis Institute is devoted to the development of sound, sustainable medical services provided by healthcare professionals who serve as environmental stewards.
Teleosis has three major goals:
to educate health professionals about the principles and practices of Ecologically Sustainable Medicine (ESM);
to build a community-based network for healthcare professionals who are seeking to provide sustainable medical services; and
to enable access to high quality, cost-effective, sustainable medical services benefiting underserved populations and the environment in which we live.
A Berkeley, CA-based 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, Teleosis was founded by Dr. Joel Kreisberg, DC, CCH, a holistic healthcare practitioner and environmental educator. For more information, please see www.teleosis.org
