College of Medicine to Host Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series on March 28

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 25, 2019) — As part of the annual Dean’s Distinguished Lecture series, the University of Kentucky College of Medicine will feature Dr. Tieraona Low Dog, an expert in integrative medicine, dietary supplements and women’s health. The lecture will take place from noon to 1 p.m., Thursday, March 28, in the Karpf Auditorium inside UK Chandler Hospital Pavilion A.

Low Dog will present “The Greening of Medicine.” The event is free and open to the public.

A founding member of both the American Board of Integrative Medicine and the Academy of Women’s Health, Low Dog has received high praises for her work in natural medicine. She was appointed by President Bill Clinton to serve on the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy — a role which allowed her to provide legislative and administrative recommendations to public health policy.

Low Dog also served as the elected Chair of the U.S. Pharmacopeia Dietary Supplements and Botanicals Expert Information Panel and was appointed to the Scientific Advisory Counsel for the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Low Dog has published over 50 peer-reviewed scientific articles on integrative medicine and women’s health and has authored more than two dozen chapters for medical textbooks. In 2017, she was presented with Lifetime Achievement awards from both Scripps Health and Nutrition Business Journal.
