Challenges and Opportunities for Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in the USA

Presenter / Panelists

Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) can provide effective and cost-efficient treatment for a wide variety of medical conditions, but have not reached their therapeutic potential in America. In China, the public has known the value of acupuncture/TCM for thousands of years and have ready access to acupuncture in hospitals where Chinese and western medicine are available and practiced side by side, and medical practitioners select the most appropriate treatment for the maximum benefit of patients.
