The New York Times published an article today titled A Doctor for Disease, a Shaman for the Soul. It’s accompanied by a slideshow. It’s about a new policy by Mercy Medical Center in Merced, CA, recognizing the role of traditional healers. The hospital is inviting Hmong shamans to perform nine approved ceremonies. The policy is the first of its kind in the country.
I’m adding links to both the article and slideshow to the Hmong section of my website.
Wow! What an amazing article and what a great way to educate both cultures about each other. Thanks for sharing this, Larry.
