Pacific Symposium Celebrates 30 Years in California

The 30th anniversary conference of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine from October 23 through 30, in San Diego, promises to be a meeting of the minds that brings together integrative healthcare professionals and exhibitors from around the world.

      Pacific Symposium 2018 will take Chinese medicine continuing education a step further as presenters tackle the challenge of  “peak performance”, or how Chinese medicine can help healthy patients achieve optimal health and athletic performance. The keynote speaker is Paul Chek, founder of the C.H.E.K Institute and an embodiment of this peak performance theme.

      There will be more than 70 vendors in an exhibit hall open to the public, along with Chinese medicine luminaries who were at the very first symposium, including Ted Kaptchuk, Kiiko Matsumoto, Subhuti Dharmananda, Whitfield Reaves and Misha Cohen. The newest generation of brilliant presenters includes Drew Pierson, Sarica Cernohous, David Bomzon, Chad Conner, Guohui Liu, and Andrew and JulieAnn Nugent-Head.

To register, visit The Pacific College of Oriental Medicine is located at 65 E. Wacker Pl., 21st Fl., in Chicago. For more information, call 773-477-4822, email Admissions-[email protected] or [email protected] or visit
