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 (10/9, 10/23, 11/6, 11/20, 12/4, 12/18, 1/8, and 1/22), 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). 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.
