Multidisciplinary Management of Chronic Pain at Federally Qualified Health Centers: An Interview with Dr. Jim Lehman
Noah: Today I’m here with Dr. Lehman. He is an associate professor of clinical sciences at the University Of Bridgeport College Of Chiropractic and the director of Health Sciences postgraduate education. Dr. Lehman developed the full-time resident training program that you set up at the Connecticut based federally qualified health center. Can you talk about the origin of that program and where you're at in the process right now?
Dr. Lehman: Back in 2011 the Community Health Center Inc. out of Middletown Connecticut contacted the chiropractic State Association and expressed interest in integrating chiropractic services into their primary care facilities. The Dean of the chiropractic college at the University of Bridgeport then contacted me and asked if I would be interested in working with this particular program since I had some experience in New Mexico integrating chiropractic services into Lovelace health care system and also Lovelace Medical Center and then the University Of New Mexico School Of Medicine.
I accepted the offer. We met with the entire administrative staff for Community Health Center about incorporating chiropractic services to evaluate and manage patients that have chronic pain.
