The Stephen E. Straus Distinguished Lecture in the Science of Complementary and
Alternative Medicine series was established to honor Dr. Straus, the founding director

leading figures in science and medicine to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to
speak about their perspective 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.
