The Office of Integrative Medicine and Health at the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences and the American Institute of Homeopathy will host a 90-minute research presentation reviewing new research findings in the field of homeopathic medicine and the developing understanding of the biological basis for homeopathic remedy response.
Iris Bell MD, PhD, integrative medicine researcher, and Peter Fisher, MD, rheumatologist and homeopathic physician, are international leaders in the field of integrative and homeopathic medicine and their work has shaped the profession for over two decades.
Homeopathic medicine is used by tens of thousands of physicians and millions of consumers worldwide. While growth in its use continues, there is a great need for understanding the growing body of research around homeopathy and the homeopathic remedy response.
“More and more patients are asking their physicians for information on homeopathic remedies,” said John Pan, MD, founding medical director of OIMH and the moderator for the webinar. “It is important that today’s medical practitioners understand the evidence that exists behind this modality.”
