This symposia session provides three individual presentations covering a pediatric integrative medicine health services research agenda, pediatric physician wellness and pediatric mind and body research. This will include a presentation on the Pediatric Integrative Medicine Health Services Research Agenda survey data collected from healthcare and CAM in the United States from September-December 2013.  The development and motivation for initiating this survey will also be covered. To provide a platform to translate this data into knowledge and action, free user-friendly online tools to access data will be discussed. In addition, pediatric physician wellness will be covered in regard to burnout and an intervention using an integrative medicine based approach. Finally, emerging evidence in pediatric mind and body research will be discussed.
