As most of you may know by now, Dr. Raj was honoured to be invited to speak at the 21st Annual International Conference on TCVM this past September, held in Shanghai China.
The conference theme centred around TCVM for dermatological and immune-mediated diseases in dogs, cats and horses and was held at the stunning World Expo Hotel.
Each day began with an early morning buffet breakfast which included many delicacies of both Western and Chinese delights. This was followed by a morning of presentations, a quick lunch, more lectures and presentations with the evening being capped off with a dinner social where presenters and attendees alike could mingle to discuss the days events.
On day 3 of the event, Dr. Raj took to the stage to present her findings on Platelet Rich Plasma Aqua-Acupuncture in Cats and Dogs. Later that evening at the awards ceremony she was presented with one of the ten best speaker awards. It was a night to remember.
The next day we traveled to The Bund. A trendy area in downtown Shanghai near the river where we had dinner with the Board of Directors from the World Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine, including Dr. Mushtaq Memon, Dr. Alexandra Kintz Konegger and Dr. Gregory Todd. We discussed some of the latest procedures that were presented at the conference as well as the potential of working together in the future.
