Bastyr University Part of Group to Win the Health Care Champions - Military Services Award

Bastyr University wins award for helping soldiers better manage their pain.

Bastyr University is proud to announce it is part of a newly formed medical team, called “The Puget Sound Pain Group,” that just won the Health Care Champions Award - Military Services Award.

The group consists of the Western Regional Medical Command, Madigan Healthcare System, VA-Puget Sound Healthcare System, University of Washington and Bastyr University. Established a year ago, their focus has been to work together to find out how to manage the unique medical management challenges facing service members, veterans and retirees who suffer chronic pain caused by injuries sustained during military service.

“We are humbled by this award and honored to be a part of this fine group of medical professionals,” said Timothy C. Callahan, PhD, Bastyr University senior vice president and provost. “This collaboration is a perfect example of the kind of integration Bastyr University strives to achieve. By taking the best of conventional and complementary medicine, we can diagnose the most effective ways to treat all of our patients.”

Bastyr University’s faculty provided the group with valuable guidance on position descriptions, scope of practice and recruitment efforts for complementary and alternative medical providers, such as chiropractors, acupuncturists, medical massage therapists and yoga teachers.

The award was presented during a June 13, 2012 ceremony at the Tacoma Museum of Glass and is sponsored by the Business Examiner Media Group of Tacoma.
