The Florence G. Strauss-Leonard A. Wisneski Indigenous & Integrative Health Collection (Strauss-Wisneski Collection) was created in memory of Florence G. Strauss and is primarily supported by a generous endowment from Henry L. and Joan T. Strauss.
The collection includes resources related to integrative whole-person health practices and indigenous, culturally based therapies from around the world. Often distinct from and sometimes at odds with conventional Western approaches to medicine, the resources in this collection provide an opportunity to learn about different healing traditions, philosophies and attitudes toward health and disease.
The Strauss Committee is an integral part of the collection and is comprised of health practitioners, researchers, educators, and librarians from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and larger integrative and indigenous health communities. Committee members advise on collection acquisitions and the Strauss-Wisneski Lecture series.
