It is with great pleasure that we tell you, readers, about the 5th East-West Integrative Medical Symposium for Immunology & Wellness emphasizing Clinical Practice, Science, & Technology, to be held at the New York Medical College in Valhalla, New York on July 14th. This event is the brainchild of Dr. Xiu-Min Li, our contributor and my co-author. We don’t say much about Dr. Li’s work on this website because there’s just too much to say. For those of you who are unfamiliar with her work, she has pioneered the adaptation of Chinese herbal medicine for treating food allergies, asthma, Crohn’s Disease–the list seems to grow by the month.
The speakers list this year includes Wayne Shreffler, MD, PhD Chief, Pediatric Allergy & Immunology; Director Food Allergy Center, Massachusetts General Hospital for Children; Sakina Bajowala, MD Author of The Food Allergy Fix: An Integrative and Evidence-Based Approach to Food Allergen Desensitization; Sarah Schenck, Co-Director and Producer, Missing Microbes, Anne Maitland, MD PhD; Assistant Professor, Clinical Immunology, Mount Sinai School of Medicine; Jing-Ke Weng, PhD, Member, Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research,Assistant Professor of Biology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; David Y Lee, PhD; Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, Director, Bio-Organic and Natural Products Research Laboratory, McLean Hospital; Yung-Chi Cheng, PhD, Henry Bronson Professor of Pharmacology, Yale School of Medicine, Chairman, Consortium for the Globalization of Chinese Medicine (CGCM). And others–an all-star roster, including Dr. Li herself.
All this, with breakfast and lunch thrown in for a nominal admission cost considering the scientific and clinical firepower who will present. Please join us.
