Health & Living Live 2019 Part 2 of 4: Traditional vs Conventional Medicine


17-Dec-19 16:00


How does the world around us – our environment, our culture and our relationships – interact with our health? We look at traditional medicine and its place in the Malaysian healthcare system today, and ask whether evidence-based medicine is the only way forward. This is an edited recording of the debate session that was held at the BFM Health & Living Live 2019 by AIA Vitality. Debaters on the panel were: Dr Rafidah Abdullah, Consultant Physician & Nephrologist and Head of Department of Medicine, Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Hospital; and Dr Amir Farid Isahak, Practitioner of Holistic Integrative Medicine and Consultant Gynaecologist
