About Us

True North works with Collaborating Organizations to share wisdom and develop relationships to improve the health of our communities and for the mutual benefit of the organizations and those who participate with them.

True North’s mission is to change health care by inspiring individuals to live healthier lives through research, education and integrative care. Part of the work we do with our patients focuses on ways that patients can help themselves. Patients are seen as individuals whose “complex evolving systems of body, mind and spirit” are interrelated. We collaborate with organizations who share this perspective and whose work in the world furthers values that we also espouse.

If you have questions about True North or its collaborators, contact True North’s Executive Director, Catherine Valenza by calling 207-781-4488.
