Episode 4: Western Medicine vs. TCAM

In the United States and in most of Europe, when we think health, we think doctors–white-coated, extensively trained M.D.s.–but up to 80% of the world´s population practices medicine very differently. What are some of the characteristics of these alternative frameworks for understanding health and illness? Can multiple frameworks coexist in peace? Graduating seniors Lauren Imbornoni and Josh Niska, both future physicians, join host Ellen Dupont to discuss the tensions between Western medicine and Traditional, Complementary, and Alternative Medicine.
