Many of the illnesses plaguing modern life - from cancer, high blood pressure, to diabetes - are mind-body syndromes that come out of stressful and excessive lifestyles, says Dr. He Yumin. A professor at the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and one of the most innovative thinkers in the field, Dr. He Yumin has more than three decades of experience combining holistic theories of traditional Chinese medicine and biomedical knowledge to treat cancer and other serious illnesses. The School of Social Sciences invites you to a rare opportunity - Dr. He’s first public talk in the U.S. - to hear the traditional Chinese medical expert address the keys to preventing and treating chronic illnesses - including cancer - through a balanced mind-body healthy lifestyle.

He is the author of more than 300 research articles and numerous books, including Understanding after a Serious Illness 大病之后才明白(Hubei science and Technology Press, 2015), Cancer is Chronic 癌症只是慢性病 (Shanghai Science and Technology Press, 2014), and You Will Manage Your Own Health 你会管理自己的健康吗 (Shanghai Science and Technology Press, 2014).

Dr. He is a Mandarin speaker. Assisting in English translation during his lecture and Q&A will be Mei Zhan, UCI anthropology professor, and He's daughter, Dr. He Qionger, who is a research associate (Ph.D.) in the Department of Physiology at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine. Her specialty is Fragile X and autism spectrum disorder.
