The Four Lessons Successful Practitioners Have Learned with Dr. Jill Blakeway
Saturday, 11/4 at 9:00 AM to 9:50 AM
Dr. Jill Blakeway founded the YinOva Center in New York City with an initial investment of just $100. Today it's one of the largest Chinese medical practices in the US and in this class Jill will share the lessons she has learned along the way. She will outline the 4 simple strategies that she believes are vital to a successful practice and teach you how to make them your own. The lecture will cover how to market authentically, why effective case management is key to managing clinical efficacy and how to build medical, operational, financial, and marketing infrastructure as your practice grows. Each of these topics will then be fleshed out in more detail in Jill's afternoon lecture.
Treating Bacterial Skin Diseases with Chinese Herbal Medicine with Mazin Al-Khafaji
Saturday, 11/4 at 9:55 AM to 10:45 AM
With the advent of antibiotics in the 1940s, many considered the era of infection over. This view is now considered naively optimistic; with antibiotic resistance reaching dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. This short talk will explore options that Chinese medicine offers in treating bacterial infections of the skin.
9 Star Patterns and the Small Intestine with Kiiko Matsumoto
Saturday, 11/4 at 11:15 AM to 12:05 PM
This course will cover patterns related to the small intestine and their foundation in Chinese medicine. Kiiko will discuss the classics, the theoretical basis of the 9 star system, the reflection of the nine star map in relation to the abdomen, and clinical applications. This is a great short course for anyone interested in a fresh interpretation of classical Chinese medical texts, and how to use this information to help their patients.
