- SAR's 2019 International Research Conference, June 27-29, 2019 | Burlington, VT, USA
The conference is organized around the theme of moving toward a world where acupuncture research is organized, coherent and readily accessible to all the relevant stakeholder groups in order to inform evidence-based decision-making. The goal is to support a reality where integration and cross-pollination can flourish - in both the intradisciplinary sense between various acupuncture stakeholders - and the interdisciplinary sense between acupuncture and other health care disciplines.
The annual IM4US conference will be held at Santa Clara University in Northern California August 22-24, 2019. The aim of IM4US is to reduce health disparity caused by poverty, racism, and the social determinants of health through integrative medicine. A long list of chronic illnesses disproportionately affect the poor, with the incidence of chronic pain, mental illness, coronary disease, diabetes, and toxin exposure each between one and a half to eight times their incidence in the general population. As conventional medicine has moved excessively towards a focus on surgeries and pharmaceuticals, it leaves integrative medicine with much to offer to patients with chronic illness. Many of these health issues resist conventional care, at least as it is most often delivered today, yet respond robustly to integrative approaches, and many of these can be provided at low cost.
Our target audience is health care providers, healers, administrators, and staff that provide integrative care to the underserved or who desire to incorporate integrative care to their patients. This includes medical doctors, nurses and nurse practitioners, herbalists, acupuncturists, community health workers, health educators, naturopathic doctors, osteopathic doctors, physician assistants, homeopaths, midwives, dieticians, and clinical nutritionists. We welcome administrators, public health workers, researchers, policy analysts, activists, and members of underserved communities.
