After graduating from the Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1979, Nanjing, China, Dr. Huang practiced emergency medicine, internal medicine, gynecology, and pediatrics for more than 20 years. His skillful blending of ancient acupuncture and herbal knowledge with modern, scientific research and Western Medicine, and his astute diagnostic and treatment skills resulted in his promotion to Chief Physician at Jiangsu TCM Hospital (Chief Physician is roughly equivalent to a position in the U.S. between Chief of Staff and Staff Physician). Dr. Huang has been presented two awards by the Chinese government for his achievements in medical research. He has published many articles in professional journals, as well as books. Dr. Huang reviews current medical research publications from China on an ongoing basis.
Before being invited to the U.S. as a visiting scholar, Dr. Huang was a member of China's Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine and China's Society of Medical Information, the Director of the Board of the Medical Computer User's Association, and the Academic Secretary of the Society for Research of Liver Disorders.
Following in the Chinese tradition, Dr. Huang has spent decades investigating the nature and causative factors of health, disease and death. He says, "It is the physician's duty to teach students and patients to improve their health through diet, exercise, and other lifestyle changes, so that they may live a long, healthy life." In addition to counseling patients and students on these subjects, Dr. Huang has translated portions of The Yellow Emperor's Canon of Internal Medicine, and other important Chinese texts dealing with health, which are available from his office.
When treatment for disease or injury is appropriate, Dr. Huang is most effective.
