Description

Mind-Body Health in Tibetan Medicine: Crossing the Great Divide

The 2017 Tibetan Medicine Conference on Mind-Body Health, taking place at Harvard Medical School in Boston MA, is the third annual conference of the Tibetan Medicine Committee of World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies (WFCMS). Past conferences sponsored by WFCMS took place in Xining, Qinghai Province (2015) and Lhasa, Tibetan Autonomous Region (2016) in conjunction with the celebration of the 100th anniversary of Men-Tsee-Khang.

The aim of the 2017 Tibetan Medicine Conference is to strengthen international academic exchange on mind-body health, and encourage cross-disciplinary cooperation through mutual understanding and shared effort. With serious dialogue between traditional Tibetan medical practitioners and Western scholars, scientists, and clinicians, the conference may help identify goals for future research and establish international collaborative efforts that can carry forward the Tibetan medical tradition, raise its standards, and better serve humanity.

Jiumei Pengcuo, TMD, chairperson of the Specialty Committee of Tibetan Medicine of WFCMS and president of Qinghai Jiumei Tibetan Medical Group will give the opening lecture on Friday, Oct. 6 at 8:30am, followed by three keynote speakers:

  • Rudolph Tanzi MD, PhD - Joseph P. and Rose F. Kennedy Professor of Neurology Harvard Medical School Vice-Chair, Neurology; Director, Genetics and Aging Research Unit Massachusetts General Hospital | The Potential for Natural Products in Treating Alzheimer's Disease

  • Yumba - Vice-Director, Men-Tsee-Khang, Lhasa | Science of Astrology in Tibetan Medicine
