International authority on veterinary acupuncture to speak about evidence-based clinical applications
Dr. Shen Huisheng Xie will speak at the LSU SVM as part of the Crow Speaker Series
Shen Huisheng Xie, DVM, PhD, will present a seminar titled, “Indications for using Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) for veterinary medical practice based on evidence-based research.” The presentation will be held in the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine’s Auditorium at noon on November 30, 2012. Continuing education credits are available (1 hour) and a light lunch will be provided. The public is invited to attend.
Dr. Xie (pronounced "shay") received his DVM at the Sichuan College of Veterinary Medicine in China in 1983. In 1988, he received his Master of Science in Veterinary Acupuncture from Beijing Agricultural University. From 1988 to 1994, he was an assistant and then associate professor in the Beijing Agricultural University College of Veterinary Medicine. In 1999, he received his PhD from the University of Florida for his investigation of the mechanisms of pain control in horses by using acupuncture. He currently serves as a clinical associate professor of the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Florida.
Believing that TCVM should be available to more veterinarians, Dr. Xie founded the Chi Institute of Chinese Medicine in 1998. The Chi Institute, located in Reddick, Fla., trains veterinarians in the various branches of TCVM, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, Tui-na, and food therapy.
Dr. Xie's academic accomplishments are extensive. He has received achievement awards from several Chinese institutions, including the Ministry of Agriculture, the National Science and Technology Committee, and the Beijing Agricultural University. He has lectured about veterinary acupuncture and herbal medicine in the U.S., Japan, Thailand, South Korea, Australia, Mexico, Brazil, and Europe. He has authored 12 books and over 100 scientific papers. His textbooks, including Xie's Veterinary Acupuncture, Xie's Veterinary Chinese Herbology, and Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine—Fundamental Principles, have been used for TCVM training programs in China, Japan, Europe, South America, Australia and the U.S.
The Crow Speaker Series was made possible by a generous gift from Donald and Sue Crow, of Shreveport, La. The Crows have long recognized the need for more tools to complement existing treatment options and they have chosen to make the LSU SVM the beneficiary of their vision. The Crows’ gift also enables clinical faculty and technicians to receive training in integrative techniques, which will benefit both students and the patients in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
