Description: National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine Distinguished Lectures in the Science of Complementary and Alternative Medicine

Each year, NCCAM invites two leading figures in science and medicine to speak about their unique perspectives on the field of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). The lectures shed light on the evolution of CAM practice and research and the current use of CAM by the public.

Dr. McEwen is a renowned neuroendocrinologist who has done extensive research on the impact of stress on brain structure and neurochemistry. During this lecture, Dr. McEwen will discuss the important role that the endocrine and nervous systems play in the communication between the brain and the rest of the body. He will address how common, low levels of stress over time, such as stress caused by the events of everyday life, can affect health.
