Medical Expert Offers Seminar at Mount Nittany on Role of Integrative Medicine

On November 18, Glen Aukerman, MD, director of the Division of Integrative Medicine and Medical Director for the Center for Integrative Medicine at Ohio State University, will present the final lecture of the Family Medicine Seminar Series, “A Role for Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine.”

The lecture will discuss the core concepts of integrative medicine and explain how those concepts can influence medical practice. It will identify five domains of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for research purposes, define integrative medicine to show how it is different from CAM or alternative medicine and select resources for performing evidence-based research in CAM.

Each evening in the series will begin with a buffet dinner at 6 p.m., followed by the lecture at 6:30 p.m. in the Galen and Nancy Dreibelbis Auditorium, at entrance D. The series is geared toward a broad audience, including community members, students, local and regional family physicians, pediatricians, internists, nurses and other healthcare professionals. This activity has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 credit.
