We are delighted to announce that the 4th Annual YSU Integrative Women’s Health & Reproductive Medicine Symposium will be held on April 24th and 25th, 2021. The goal of the symposium is to showcase integrative approaches to reproductive medicine while inspiring and educating Chinese medicine practitioners with current research findings and clinical practice in the fields of women’s health and reproductive medicine. This year, the symposium will be held entirely online.

The annual symposium is an excellent opportunity for participants to learn about the latest developments in the profession, directly from leading clinicians and researchers in the field. Topics covered this year include assisted reproduction, genetics and mosaicism, follicular genesis and reproduction potential with Chinese medicine, IVF stimulation protocols, COVID19 and its effects on reproductive medicine, classical and contemporary herbal formulas in reproductive medicine, nutraceuticals and male reproductive health.

Presenters at this year’s online conference are all eminent clinicians and researchers in the field, including Marc Kalan, Paul Magarelli, Shaoting Jing, Paul Turek, Bob Quinn, Catherine DeUgarte, Daoshing Ni, Mao Shing Ni, Sabine Wilms and Z’ev Rosenberg.

We are anticipating 200 to 300 participants from the acupuncture/Chinese medicine profession, along with attendees from other healthcare professions attending the 2-day event. Admissions is free for all current Yo San University students and faculty.

16 units California Acupuncture Board CEU (Category I), NCCAOM PDA and ABORM Approved.
