近幾年來,中醫在世界各地快速發展,中醫藥產業總值大幅成長,受到許多國家及主流醫療體系的關注。世界衛生組織WHO於2018年正式把三千多個中醫症狀及診斷列入ICD-11(International Classification of Diseases),為中醫融入主流醫學做準備。中國國務院於2016年頒布「中醫藥發展戰略規劃綱要」,把中醫藥發展列為未來15年(2016~2030)國家發展的重大核心政策,大力推展中醫藥臨床應用外,亦強調利用互聯網、大數據、人工智能等高科技來提升傳統中醫藥產業,並計畫訓練15萬名西醫轉化為中醫, 積極普及中醫各個省市鎮村,並輸出到世界。
 
面對如此大的轉變與商機,你對中醫的了解有多少?中醫就只是養養生、哪裡痛哪裡針灸拔罐、吃什麼補什麼?還是高談闊論的讓人覺得玄而又玄、虛無飄渺?中醫真的能治療重症、急症嗎?坊間似是而非、誇大不實的宣傳,你又能分辨多少?美洲中國工程師學會舊金山分會特地舉辦中醫概論短期課程,介紹正統中醫的基本概念, 以科學精神及臨床實證來認識中醫,讓學員們有正確的開端。
 
講師李宗恩博士,原本為高科技企業管理人及投資人,史丹佛大學電機工程博士、柏克萊加大MBA。因父親罹患肝癌而進入醫學領域,師承中醫經方大師倪海廈,並成為其指定傳人,以治療重症、急症、特殊複雜疾病臨床療效卓越聞名,受邀到各地醫療機構教學演講及指導中西醫師,為中國醫藥大學五十週年慶主講、廣州中醫藥大學大型醫學研討會特邀大師級專家、國際醫藥大學博士院博士生導師等。李博士並致力於高科技與醫學的結合,為最早推動中醫大數據分析及人工智能化的專家之一,曾擔任史丹佛大學訪問學者、台灣工業研究院顧問、北京市政府醫療資訊專家顧問等。李博士的部落格為www.DrLee.us,臉書網頁「當張仲景遇上史丹佛」。

Topic II: Reducing Stress in the Workplace

Overwork and fatigue are the most common causes of stress in the workplace. Though there are many factors that contribute to stress, we can successfully learn to decrease its overall affects.
Managing workplace stress starts with identifying the sources of stress and finding strategies for managing them. The better we are at understanding our own stress, the less other people’s stress will negatively affect us and the more we can be a positive influence in the lives of others.

This session teaches how to:
- Use effective communication skills to ease stress
- Release tension and negativity
- Be aware of the energy of working relationships
- Shift perspectives and become more flexible

Reducing stress and tension is about learning how to recognize our thoughts, emotions, and the way we interact with others. By understanding the energy and patterns of stress, we can take healthy steps to reduce its negative effects and create a sense of balance, good health, and peace of mind in our lives.
