BMAS Scientific Meeting Series


The BMAS is launching its Scientific Meeting Series, a new way to access the best in acupuncture research across the world. A series of six one-hour lectures from leaders in the field of acupuncture, spread over the year, that you can enjoy live, and that build into a library of webcasts to refer back to time and again.
