Healthcare is becoming the hottest topic for not only governments and individuals but also investors and high-tech companies. Many billions of dollars have been invested in the sectors from disease research to merging digital health. However, with all the investments, the US healthcare system fails to deliver the results and its costs continue to rise rapidly, given the fact that the current medical system focuses on “sick care” not “health care”.
One of the changes that can help reduce healthcare costs is through preventative care. Among various methodologies, Chinese Medicine is starting to get more recognition worldwide. Chinese Medicine is experiencing a global renaissance as a result of its integrative approach into one’s daily lifestyle.
In this introductory series of 8 lectures (10/23, 11/6, 11/20, 12/4, 12/18, 1/8, 1/22, and 2/5), we will discuss the basic concepts of Chinese Medicine with the focus on the Shang Han Lun (傷寒雜病論) and the Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine (黃帝內經). From time to time, we will discuss the ideas of leveraging new technologies such as Big Data and Quantified Self, which will make “mass customization” possible for Chinese Medicine.
Due to the nature of the topic, we will conduct the lectures in Mandarin Chinese. For those students who attended the similar lecture series earlier, please note that some topics might be repeated while we will spend more time in diagnosis and real patient applications this time.
 
醫療保健是目前最熱門的話題,不僅很多政府機關及個人關注,連眾多的投資者及高科技公司,都不斷注入資金。然而,這麼多年來,每年數百億美元的投資及研究, 美國的醫療保健系統,不但無法提供的良好的個人醫療,同時成本不斷地快速上升。這個問題的癥結在於目前的醫療制度側重於「生病照顧(sick-care)」,而非「健康照顧(health-care)」。
 
預防醫學,已被各國認定可以大幅降低醫療成本,也因此各國開始大量關注中醫,中醫在全球獲得更多的認可。目前,一場全球性的中醫復興正在展開,中醫將成為綜合日常生活的整體健康照顧方法。
 
基於矽谷科技人的需求,美洲中國工程師學會將第二次開設短期中醫概論課程,於工研院北美公司舉辦,日期定為10/23、11/6、11/20、12/4、12/18、1/8、1/22、及2/5,課程全程由李宗恩博士授課,內容以傷寒雜病論及黃帝內經為主,同時亦討論高科技在中醫上的應用。
 
考慮內容,所有課程將以中文進行。場地限制,只能有80人,依照註冊先後順序。報名請至中工會網站: http://www.cie-sf.org/。
