LINCOLN ACADEMY: Jonathan Ammen: Acupuncture and Traditional Asian Medicine, Overview, Modern Research and Integration

Monday, March 19, 2018

Come to the Lincoln Academy on Monday, March 19 at 12:30 pm at Bemis Hall with Jonathan Ammen who will discuss “Acupuncture and Traditional Asian Medicine, Overview, Modern Research and Integration.” Acupuncture and traditional Asian medicine have become popular and enjoyed increasing acceptance in the western world over the last two decades. Today, many hospitals and academic medical centers are integrating acupuncture services with conventional care. This talk will include a quick overview of traditional Asian medicine followed by an up-to-date chronicle of the science behind acupuncture, how it works and what it can treat. Jonathan Ammen has practiced and researched traditional Asian medicine for 37 years. He currently sees patients and conducts research at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, Lexington, and Peabody. The lectures last about an hour, including a question and answer period. Participants are welcome to stay after the program to continue their discussion.
