Description: The Stephen E. Straus Distinguished Lecture in the Science of Complementary and Alternative Medicine series was established to honor Dr. Straus, the founding director of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. This series brings 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.
