The 17th World Congress on Qigong, Tai Chi, and Traditional Chinese Medicine

A big push for cancer treatment in health, wealth and peace!

Forty-five years ago, President Richard Nixon declared war on cancer, but cancer is still deadly even with chemotherapy, radiation, immunotherapy, precision medicine, and other methods. In June cancer research “moonshot” summit in Washington D.C, Vice President Joe Biden made a remark that more than 1.6 million new cases of cancer would be diagnosed by the end of this year, and about 600,000 Americans would die from the disease in the next six months. We are glad to see that the 17th World Congress on Qigong, Tai Chi, and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which will be held on Sept. 2-5 in San Francisco, CA, Whitcomb Hotel, will have a rich program in cancer prevention and treatment.SF-grphic-bills
