Dear GP-TCM RA Members and Friends


Season’s greetings from Cambridge and London!  We are pleased to bring you the latest edition of the GP-TCM RA Newsletter, featuring 4 important pieces of breaking news, plus an Editorial on Herbal-Drug Interactions. The Newsletter can be downloaded here: NL Christmas 2016 v6

  • First TCM law passed, to promote healthy progress
  • The 6th Annual GP-TCM RA Meeting will be hosted by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, United Kingdom on 26-28 July 2017.
  • The new President, President-Elect and BoD members to take office on 1 January 2017.
  • Warmest congratulations to Prof. Rudi Bauer, the 1st President of the GP-TCM RA, for his appointment as Chairman of the EDQM (European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines) TCM Working Party


It has been a great privilege and honour to serve as your Co-Editors!  Starting from the New Year, one of us (TPF) will become President and the other (QX) will re-join the BoD after two years’ absence, and will have different job descriptions within the Association. Therefore, this issue of the GP-TCM RA Newsletter is the last issue that we have co-edited. However, you can have our words that we will continue to work closely together for a better future of the Association and for our members, who have trusted us in all these years!

We wish you a very Happy, Healthy and Successful 2017!
