In this course, Ka-Kit Hui, MD, FACP, Wallis Annenberg Professor in Integrative East-West Medicine and Founder and Director of the Center for East-West Medicine at the UCLA Department of Medicine and David Geffen School of Medicine, and his colleagues, will share his 50 years’ experience in learning, practicing, educating and researching in healthcare. Dr. Hui’s vision is to transform the current disease-based, high-tech, costly and fragmented healthcare model to one that provides person-centered and humanistic, low-tech, cost effective and cohesive care.
“Not only will you learn practical skills at a personal level to help you stay well and healthy, you will also be introduced to the perspective of how you can become a change agent in transforming the healthcare system. You will become familiar with the facet of factors that play a pivotal role in your own health and that of the world’s, and the necessity for various sectors in society to come together to build a better healthcare delivery system for generations to come. As the world works towards recovery from COVID-19 pandemic, it is vital for you to stay informed about how to protect your own health and rethink the importance of health and well-being. There is no better place to learn about integrative East-West health than through this online course at UCLA.”
