Tzu Chi USA is proud to host the Tzu Chi International Medical Association’s (TIMA) Annual Global Forum in sunny San Dimas, California. Medical and health professionals from around the world will gather to present and share humanistic approaches to health.
Our three day medical conference will feature workshops on innovative and current topics in humanistic healthcare including medicine; dentistry; alternative treatments including acupuncture, acupressure, and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM); vision care; community health; medical volunteer programs, and so much more.
The Tzu Chi International Medical Association, or TIMA, is a coalition of health professionals and volunteers dedicated to providing quality medical, dental, vision, and alternative care, along with community health services and education. We strive to serve all corners of the world, including underserved regions of the Americas as part of TIMA USA. Founded by Dharma Master Cheng Yen of the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation, we work with the spirit of offering compassion and relief to those who suffer, as well as continuing medical education (CME) seminars that focuses on humanistic and holistic approaches to healthcare.
