SAR’s January 2012 Think Tank

In an effort to synthesize and harness the momentum from our 2010 conference, the SAR Board of Directors met on January 19-22, 2012 at Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA to draft a White Paper focusing on the comparative use of electrical and manual acupuncture within the continuum of basic science mechanisms, clinical research, and practitioner usage. This effort built on our previous White Paper conference, which culminated in the publication “Paradoxes in acupuncture research: strategies for moving forward,” published in 2011 (Langevin et al, Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine 2011).   Read more about SAR's January 2012 Think Tank here.
