SYNERGY HEALTH CONSULTING

serves as a convener of thought leaders from around the globe

who bring expertise on the neurobiology of pain, substance use challenges, and behavioral health integration. Synergy Health Consulting partners with policy makers at the county, state and national level.  Our current and previous consulting affiliates and project partners include the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, Harvard Medical School’s National Resource Center for Academic Detailing (NaRCAD), Oregon Health Authority (OHA), Oregon Medical Board, Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), and University of Washington.
