CCM Capstone Presentations

Please join us for our 2020 DSOM capstone presentations

Saturday, June 6:  9 a.m. to 12:35 p.m. via Zoom. (A virtual invite has been sent the CCM community. Contact Jennifer Peterson, if you need the link:  the whole NUNM is welcome and invited).

Capstone presentations offer our community the opportunity to learn from our DSOM students as they engage a particularized research project. The presentations culminate the DSOM degree and offer students an opportunity to share their inquiry with the professional community. The topics contribute to the proliferation of classical Chinese medicine and support the professional growth of our students.
