The Society for Acupuncture Research


SAR’s 2019 International Research Conference 

June 27-29, 2019 | Burlington, VT, USA
Acupuncture Research, Health Care Policy, & Community Health… Closing the Loop
Sponsored by the Osher Center at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital

In order for Acupuncture Research to reach its full potential, research findings need not only to inform “best” clinical practice, but also inform decisions made by policy makers and third-party payers regarding insurance reimbursement.

SAR’s 2019 Research Conference will:

1) Continue to provide an international forum for researchers to clarify, strengthen, and disseminate the evidence base and shape the future acupuncture research agenda; and

2) Close the information “loop” between acupuncture researchers, clinicians, policy makers, and third-party payers.
