The lecture, "Tibetan Medicine for Mental and Physical Health" by Dr. Tenzin Choedrak, is open to the public free of charge.

Originally in Tibetan and simultaneously translated into English, the lecture will be preceded by an introduction and accompanied with a commentary by Maine Medical Center's Dr. Walter R.
