Visit to New York Medical School
On November 13th, the Tianjiang Pharmaceutical delegation arrived at the hospital for an exchange visit by the invitation of Professor Li Xiu-Min of New York Medical College. The delegation visited her laboratory and discussed with both her team members and the leaders of the New York Medical College cooperation in basic research and clinical research of Chinese medicine.

Tianjiang Pharmaceutical's trip to the United States involved interaction with a variety of significant entities in the the field of medicine, including Highland Hospital, Sutter Health, Harvard Chinese Medicine Forum, and New York Medical College. Each visit was aimed at conducting scientific research on traditional Chinese medicine. Additionally, Tianjiang attended the SupplySide West industrial trade show to advance the development of Chinese medicine in the raw material market.
Visiting hospitals, researching US markets and policies, and conversing with academic scholars, especially in the mainstream medicine society of the US, was enriching for Tianjiang's delegation. The company not only recognizes the issues surrounding the development of traditional Chinese medicine in the mainstream Western medical market, but also sees that our modern day has unprecedented opportunities for change. Through the expansion of science and technology, the spectrum of disease, as well as medical goals and models have undergone tremendous change. The idea Traditional Chinese medicine and modern Western medicine complement one another synergistically has only been reinforced over the years.
As Chen Zhu, the former Minister of Health in China said, "The convergence of the two cognitive forces between the East and the West is an inevitable trend in the promotion and development of modern medicine to a higher level. This convergence has enriched and improved the connotation of Chinese and Western medicine".
The Tianjiang team conducted a thorough group discussion in New York and made a systematic US market development plan. They decided to use the achievements and advantages of Tianjiang in China to promote traditional Chinese medicine in the West. Tianjiang plans to work along with the requirements of Western modern medicine, design scientific and clinical research programs, launch products suitable for the US market, and build systematic distribution systems. By carrying out scientific research cooperation, academic lectures, educational programs in Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and public wellness, Tianjiang Pharmaceutical plans to be be the premiere brand name in the US market for Chinese herbal extracts.Tianjiang Pharmaceutical's deep interaction with the American Chinese medicine industry has effectively promoted the company's internationalization process. Traditional Chinese medicine is a treasure of ancient Chinese culture and a central part of the world's medical background. The development of Chinese medicine and its service to human health are essential tenets of Sinopharm Tianjiang.
