Report-Back from Beijing: Exploring TCM Abroad and Re-Envisioning the Medicine at Home

Written by Andrea Penagos, Yo San Clinic Intern
This March, a small and mighty delegation of Yo San students – Shareef Von Reitter, Dawn Webster, and myself – joined Dr. Qiwei Zheng and two students from South Baylo University on a learning trip to Beijing, China where we observed TCM doctors in clinical settings, mainly at the China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences’ (CACMS) Hospital of Acupuncture and Moxibustion.

My Brain New Beginning by Gabrielle Olko, 3rd Year Student

This past October, I was involved in a scooter accident; I was immediately taken to the ER. My left shoulder had been injured, but they performed multiple tests on me to make sure that nothing else had been affected in the accident. Because the injury was near my spine, they decided to run a CAT scan to make sure I didn’t have a head injury. To their surprise as well as mine, there was fogginess on the CAT scan, which led them to perform a full MRI scan. Thirteen hours later, and when they also found out that I did not have health insurance, I was released and told that I had a broken humerus and a cancerous tumor in my brain.

The DAOM Thesis presentations took place several weeks later, from April 4th to 6th, on Yo San University’s campus.
