Abstract: Compelling evidence in Alternative / Complementary Healthcare practices, such as in Tai Chi and Qigong (TCQ) studies has demonstrated consistent health improvements in population health. If the evidence can be utilized to reduce health risks and improve the health of adult population in Hawai’i, this may lead to advancing the chronic healthcare management in Hawai’i, and in turn, this may also lead to reducing billions of dollars in medical costs to treating disease. The Alternative Healthcare Institute (AHI) proposes the establishment of an AHI TCQ program based on (1), the most current evidence based research studies, (2) the evaluation of participants from an existing TCQ program, (3) feedbacks from a TCQ practitioner and local primary care providers, and (4) feedback from potential TCQ participants. The program will aim to advocate and create options for alternative healthcare practices in Hawai’i.
