Society for Acupuncture Research 2013 Conference
April 18-21, 2013
University of Michigan
Ann Harbor, Michigan, USA
The rising incidence of chronic disease and stress-related illness in the West has led to an increased utilization of acupuncture as a contemporary health care option. A major reason for this increase in usage is that acupuncture has heeded the call for evidence-based medicine, with a broad range of clinical trials, surveys of safety, and basic science studies of physiological action all contributing to its growing acceptance.
The 2013 SAR conference will explore diverse areas of acupuncture research, emphasizing their potential to affect health policy decisions and enhance clinical practice.
- Leading researchers from the U.S. and abroad will present keynote addresses, participate in symposia and panels, and lead workshops assessing recent progress, challenges and opportunities for the field
- Representative speakers from the national and international acupuncture research communities will present original data in three major areas: clinical research, basic science and research methodology.
- All attendees will be invited to submit Abstracts from which the Program Committee will select oral and poster presentations.
- A pre-conference workshop will focus on “Current status and issues in acupuncture research for practitioners, students, and educators new to this field.”
