Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Herbal symposium in Philadelphia

    The University of Pennsylvania Schools of Medicine and Nursing will sponsor a symposium on September 19th and 20th. It’s titled “Herbal Medicine: Perception, Practice, and Rational Use” Looks like an excellent program. Herbaphiles in the Philadelphia area might want to attend.

    Program topics

    • Benefits of herbal medicines
    • Use of herbals as stand-alone therapy and in drug development.
    • The future of herbal medicine

    The topics will be of interest to the public and healthcare professionals, according to the invitation. But I think it’s more health professional oriented. More information is here.
