John Weeks has worked in integrative health for 35 years as a chronicler, speaker, organizer, executive and consultant.  His Integrator Blog News & Reports and other writing have chronicled integrative policy and action for 25 years. In May 2016, he began serving as editor-in-chief of the field’s most enduring indexed journal, JACM – Paradigm, Practice and Policy Advancing Integrative Health (The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine). As the integrative era began in the mid-1990s, Weeks began consulting on integration strategies with diverse parties, including the National Institutes of Health, the Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner, American Hospital Association, multiple insurers, hospitals, professional and academic organizations and later with WHO and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) on their traditional and integrative strategies. Believing that the potential to influence policy is linked to the field forming ever-stronger collaborative organizations and initiative, he helped found and direct multiple interprofessional initiatives: Integrative Medicine Industry Leadership Summits, Integrative Health Policy Consortium, Academic Collaborative for Integrative Health, and later the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine. Weeks attended Stanford University for three years, studying history. Four institutions have granted him honorary doctorates. He works from Seattle, Washington and can be found stand-up paddle-boarding 3-4 times a week, year around, on the Salish Sea that abuts Seattle.
