This presentation will examine the practice and contribution of Chinese Medicine currently and in the past. Chinese medicine offers a non-pharmaceutic approach to pain and stress management without adverse side effects in the midst of the opioid and antipsychotic drug crisis. In the past, Chinese herbal medicine has been used to treat SARS and malaria.  Chinese researcher Tu Youyou received a joint 2015 Nobel Prize in Medicine for the discovery of Artemisinin (qinhaosu), which has saved thousands of lives in the treatment of malaria.  The lecture concludes with testimonies of the positive impact of Chinese Medicine from those who have received recent treatment.

Dr. Lau is a licensed acupuncturist and owner of King’s Acupuncture and Wellness Center in East Amherst, NY, offering acupuncture & oriental medicine, reflexology and reiki. Dr. Lau holds a master’s degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Mercy College and a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
