Welcome to the Annual Jaseng Academic (AJA) conference, a prestigious event hosted by Jaseng Hospital of Korean Medicine at Jaseng Medical Academy.

At the heart of AJA conferences lies a dedication to the exploration of manual therapies, with a particular focus on Chuna manual medicine (CMM) and osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT). Notably, CMM gained widespread recognition when it was incorporated into the Korean national health insurance coverage on April 8, 2019. Since its inception in 2018, our inaugural conference has cultivated a sterling reputation as an international gathering dedicated to advancing the cause of Integrative Medicine on a global scale.

This platform has continually evolved into a dynamic arena for the exchange of diverse perspectives and ideas, transcending the boundaries that often separate various medical systems. It is a place where healthcare professionals come together with a shared commitment: to prioritize the best possible health outcomes for patients, transcending the distinctions between Eastern and Western medical paradigms.

As we look ahead to the forthcoming AJA conferences, we eagerly anticipate these events serving as inclusive forums. Here, experts from all corners of the medical world converge to share their invaluable insights. These conferences are not constrained by convention; rather, they are platforms that foster multidimensional discussions across a wide spectrum of medical systems. Our overarching goal as healthcare professionals remains clear: to propel the field of integrative healthcare towards enhanced patient outcomes and overall well-being.Join us in this collective pursuit of excellence, as we work together to shape the future of healthcare and elevate patient care to new heights.
