Rothenburg TCM Congress (Germany)

I will once again travel to Germany for this wonderful yearly event, only an hour from my hometown of Würzburg. There will be music, celebrations, and lots of lecturing and listening. I will be teaching on pediatrics and possibly on gynecology, medical ethics, or yangsheng. And of course there is always the evening of music with Peter Firebrace, Lillian Pearl Bridges, and the usual suspects.

See the Congress website, http://www.tcm-kongress.de/en/index.htm, for updates.
