bridging the gap
between medical cultures

Laura is well educated in both western and eastern medical techniques.  She believes both to be of great value.  She began her quest to bridging the gap between Eastern and Western medical techniques in medical school.  She realizes that both styles are of great value, but of utmost importance is preventative medicine and overall physical and mental wellness.  Sadly, so much misinformation exists on the internet.  Laura seeks to educate willing learners about accurate, evidence based medical data on difficult and highly controversial questions.
