Dr. Wayne Jonas

The strain on caregivers is very personal for Dr. Jonas. When his wife, Susan, was first diagnosed with cancer in her thirties, he became a caregiver to the brave woman who spent so many years caring for him and his three children. 

Dr. Jonas is a board-certified, practicing family physician, an expert in integrative health and health care delivery, and a widely published scientific investigator. He is a professor of medicine at Georgetown University and at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences, as well as a retired lieutenant colonel in the Medical Corps of the United States Army. 

Dr. Jonas is currently the Executive Director of Samueli Integrative Health Programs, an effort supported by Henry and Susan Samueli to empower patients and doctors by providing solutions that enhance health, prevent disease, and relieve chronic pain.
