The delegation also toured The Medical Center-WKU Health Sciences Complex and met with Dr. Mary Bennett, director of WKU’s School of Nursing. The group also made a presentation about Traditional Chinese Medicine for more than 70 WKU faculty, staff, students and community members. The Xiyuan group later toured The Medical Center facilities and attended a dinner at the Confucius Institute’s “Model CI Building” on WKU’s campus. At dinner, the delegation shared ideas and discussed potential partnerships with local Chinese doctors working for Graves Gilbert Clinic and private practices.
