From Mechanism to Patient-Centered Care: Research in Acupuncture and Traditional East Asian Medicine
May 18-21, 2023
New York City, NY, USA
The SAR 2023 conference will present a platform wherein researchers from various disciplines can share, explore, and develop novel research hypotheses and strategies for Traditional East Asian Medicine (TEAM). Serving as a crossroads for basic, translational, and clinical research communities, the SAR 2023 conference will enhance the rigorous investigation of acupuncture and TEAM. By moving from mechanisms to clinical efficacy and optimal implementation, we will rigorously explore how these treatments can be appropriately integrated into health care to improve the health and well-being of people suffering from pain or other chronic medical conditions. Abstracts are solicited for presentations in the areas of clinical research, basic science and research methodology pertaining to acupuncture and other modalities of East Asian medicine including moxibustion, traditional herbs, Tai Chi, Tui Na (massage), Qi Gong and complex life style modification. Abstract submission deadline: January 16, 2023. See details.
Call for Papers: Special Issue of Medical Acupuncture
Medical Acupuncture is planning a Special Issue focusing on how acupuncture and related therapies can be used for humanitarian purposes to support people affected by disasters, displacement, environmental devastation, poverty, and human conflict. In humanitarian crises, individuals, families, and entire communities are affected by traumatic events. The editors invite manuscripts from clinicians who have utilized acupuncture and related integrative medical therapies to help people cope with physical and emotional injuries stemming from traumatic experience with a focus on humanitarian service efforts. We are interested in submissions from all cultural perspectives. We also welcome submissions that focus on the impact of traumatic stress on children and animals. Case series, original research, as well as review articles with a focus on practical application, are encouraged. The deadline for manuscript submission is: February 1, 2023. Learn more.
