Integrative Healthcare Strategies Conference

Conference at Utica College |  September 21, 2019

Exploring Culture and Practice in Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicine

Conference Overview
Integrative medicine, a holistic approach to healing that incorporates the practice of traditional, complementary, and alternative medicine (T/CAM), is increasingly accepted within conventional systems of medical treatment throughout the developed world. In Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East, T/CAM is the accepted medical standard used by the vast majority of the population. In the United States, nearly half of adults opt for integrative medical treatments, including Chinese herbal medicines, which represent the fastest growing area of alternative therapy. Integrative medicine represents a collaborative opportunity to enhance the strategies that conventional medicine has taken for more than a century.

The conference seeks to create a new discourse on the practice, history, and culture of traditional, complementary, and alternative medicine by bringing together integrative medical specialists and scholars of traditional medical systems such as historians, anthropologists, and sociologists.
