   Chinese Medicine in America: Converging Ideas, People, and Practices

   Thu, Apr 26, 2018 - Sun, Sep 9, 2018          at the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) 215 Centre St, New York City

From the Museum: "Chinese medical practices and medicines are all around us. In the mid-19th century, these “mysterious and magical” practices and concoctions arrived alongside the earliest Chinese immigrants who built the railroads and searched for gold. In the 1970s, this “alternative” medicine was best represented by acupuncture which was introduced widely. Today, Chinese medicine is an integrated part of health care in America. With its perceived evolution, is Chinese medicine better understood? What are its facets and mechanisms? What are its recognized benefits?"
