Taught jointly by professors at BUCM and scientists in the US, the Center establishes a platform for exploration of Chinese medicine alone or in combination with other therapies with an integrated approach to treat complicated diseases. Chinese medicine, such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, Tai Chi and Qi Gong, has been shown by many clinical trials and clinical studies to be effective in relieving pain, modulating the immune system to relieve allergy, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, and reducing stress and depression. The Center will host workshops and seminars on strategies to treat these disorders from a Chinese medicine perspective. Continuing education credits will be awarded for participants.
