From Te Ahi Kaa, 12:00 pm on 14 July 2019

Imagine walking into a medical clinic and getting two options of healthcare, one that stems from traditional plant based healing practices, and the other a western model of healthcare with prescriptive drugs. Dr Michael Spencer of Washington University has researched the idea of integrating Native Hawaiian healing practices into primary care, he shared his findings at the recent NAISA (Native American and Indigenous Studies Association) conference, hosted by The University of Waikato. Te Ahi Kaa presents highlights of Dr Spencer's panel discussion.
