Pacific College Book Club: Some of Our Community Members’ Books

By Pacific College - April 14, 2014

With over 30 years of experience and campuses in San Diego, New York, and Chicago, Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (PCOM) has a wide reach within the burgeoning industry of East Asian and integrative medicine. Pacific College works closely with leaders in holistic health, and many of its faculty members are renowned. The annual Pacific Symposium is one example of how PCOM coordinates with voices in the field. Pacific Symposium is produced by Pacific College annually and is one of the largest Oriental medicine conferences, where practitioners and speakers from around the globe share their wisdom and exchange thoughts.

With such an extensive network of experts in the field, we thought it was high time we provided a list of some of our faculty and alumni who have contributed to the OM literary canon. Check out our PCOM Book List! Find titles from members of our global family on all aspects of East Asian medicine and holistic health.
