The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) has appointed Nicola Finley, MD, practicing integrative medicine physician at Canyon Ranch in Tucson, Arizona, to its advisory board. A board-certified internal medicine physician who completed a fellowship in integrative medicine. Dr. Finley hopes to reshape how health and wellness are defined via physical health as well as emotional, sleep, spiritual and social wellness.
Dr. Finley has hands-on experience serving economically disadvantaged communities, having worked for more 10 years at Tucson’s El Rio Community Health Center and St. Mary’s Hospital. This experience gives her a unique perspective on the health inequities in Black and brown communities, an issue that GWS is committed to helping the wellness industry better address.
“I am humbled and honored to be part of a global organization focusing on all aspects of wellness and appreciate the opportunity to be of service to and enhance the lives of a broader community utilizing an integrative medicine framework,” said Dr. Finley. “I hope to achieve health equity for all by increasing awareness and offering strategies to close the racial disparities gap in health and wellness.”
