Update on the remarkable work at UTS-Australian Research Center in Complementary and Integrative Medicine

A recent newsletter for the UTS-Australian Research Center in Complementary and Integrative Medicine documents some of the expansive work and projects of this organization. Among these: a $350,000 award to examine complementary approaches in women’s health; a $466,000 grant from the Chiropractors Association of Australia to examine the impact of chiropractic on the Australian health; a leadership program in CAIM research; increasing connections with other public health-integrative health parties internationally, including a grant from the Indonesian government to support research on traditional medicines in that country. Professor Jon Adams, PhD, who directs the program, recently delivered the Donna Feeley Memorial Lecture to the complementary and integrative health practices group of the American Public Health Association. Much of this news is reported via the organization’s Facebook site.
