A Dukha Reindeer herder family in Mongolia receives a delivery of vitamins brought by Sas Carey of Middlebury in a trip last year. Carey is returning to Mongolia this summer to complete a health database for the 207 herders developing a project she calls Nomadicare: advocating for Mongolian traditional medicine, providing Western laboratory supplies and honing a method to bring the two together. “I really believe that integrating Eastern and Western (medicine) is the key to health for the world,” she said. “Even the World Health Organization and other groups are beginning to get it too; they’re talking about harmonizing.” Read the full story here.
