The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) celebrated a decade of rigorous research with NCCAM’s 10th Anniversary Research Symposium: Exploring the Science of Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Speakers discussed topics including natural products, mind-body medicine, and the intersection of behavioral science and integrative medicine.
People have used some CAM therapies since ancient times and often with little scientific evidence.
Since its inception in 1999, NCCAM has addressed the need to examine complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) approaches through the scope of rigorous scientific research and supported more than 2,200 research projects at scientific institutions across the United States and around the world. This symposium highlighted advances in the field of CAM research.
