Health and Wellness

Health and wellness has become an area of broad interest for SCLSNJ as we continue to provide referential guidance and information during the pandemic. The physical and psychological well-being of our communities is a matter of paramount importance in a time of increased vulnerabilities. The US National Library of Medicine identifies eight mutually interdependent dimensions of wellness: physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, vocational, financial, and environmental.

How to Look for a Doctor

DoctorFinder (American Medical Association)

If you are interested in finding physicians who are members of the American Medical Association, this is your source. The online directory lists all licensed physicians in the US and indicates whether they are current members of this prestigious association. This resource does not include dentists, optometrists, chiropractors, nurses, or allied health personnel.

The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) is a not-for-profit organization that oversees 24 approved medical specialty. Use their site to check whether your doctor  is certified. Why is this important? The ABMS routinely checks to see whether physicians meet nationally recognized standards for education, knowledge, experience and skills.
