NCCAM Lecture: "Chinese Medicine, Western Science, and Acupuncture"

On Tuesday, March 10, the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will hold the inaugural Stephen E. Straus Distinguished Lecture in the Science of Complementary and Alternative Medicine. The lecture will feature Dr. Sherwin Nuland, Professor of Surgery at Yale School of Medicine discussing “Chinese Medicine, Western Science, and Acupuncture.” During visits to China, Nuland observed major surgery done with no anesthesia, aided by acupuncture. In the Straus lecture, he will describe these operations and tell of his experience. In his recent book, “The Uncertain Art”, Nuland wrote "the basis of acupuncture's practical usefulness, even in the operating room, has still not been explained in terms acceptable to most orthodox Western scientists using orthodox Western investigative methods ... The effectiveness of correctly applied acupuncture is not our only evidence that there are undeniable phenomena that cannot explained by the investigational methods of today's biomedical science."

The lecture will take place from 2:30 to 4:00 pm (ET) in Masur Auditorium in the Clinical Center (10 Center Drive), NIH, Bethesda, Maryland. You can also view it on the Web at Sign language interpretation will be provided. For other reasonable accommodation or more information, visit or contact Karen Davison at (301) 348-1606, or This event is free and open to the public.
