A licensed acupuncturist of California, Jeffrey Pang is a third-generation herbalist in his family practice. He is from Guanzhong, China. He received his education in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) by apprenticing with his grandfather and earning a medical degree from Sun Yat Sen University of Medical Sciences. Like many physicians in China, he was sent to the countryside to work at a rural community hospital during the Cultural Revolution, and later practiced as a TCM doctor in Hong Kong. In 1984, he was invited to join Five Branches University, and has become one of its preeminent faculty members and practitioners. Dr Pang has co-authored a textbook titled Chinese Medicine Dietetics (Volume I). The text presents both a Chinese and a Western medical perspective on nutrition and offers integrative approaches to healthy eating and food remedies.
