What we aim to solve New!

There is currently a disconnect between conventional and traditional knowledge systems. Research scientists and medical professionals are working to solve humanity's greatest challenges in the areas of human health and natural resource protection. Indigenous communities are facing and tackling these same issues using a traditional knowledge paradigm. Surfing Medicine International aims to bridge the gaps between these two world views for a more complete answer to global problems.
