Oh! I have exciting news for you, readers!
On Friday, November 9, 2012 at 1 p.m. EST (that’s tomorrow!), the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) will host a Twitter chat the safety and efficacy of complementary health approaches for depression.
Two experts will help facilitate the chat, both of whom I expect will bring a lot of valuable information to the table.
First, you’ll meet research psychiatrist and psychopharmacologist Dr. Matthew Rudorfer. Dr. Rudorfer is with NIH’s National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and can answer any general questions participants have about depression and depression treatments. Want to know more about symptoms, heredity, and ways to treat depression? This is your guy.
Then, you’ll get to know the NCCAM program officer, Dr. Wendy Weber. Dr. Weber’s has a special research interest in this area and is the lady who can step in and provide information about the use and safety of complementary approaches for depression treatments.
So, what constitutes “complementary approaches,” you ask?
