Kunleng invites Dr. Dawa, an ex-student at the Tibetan Medical College, Lhasa, and former Director of Tibetan Medical and Astrological Institute, Dharamsala, to discuss the prospects for Tibetan medicine and Tibetan doctors both inside Tibet and outside. Last week, graduates of Lhasa’s Tibetan Medical College held a protest over job discrimination, while the Indian parliament passed a bill recognizing Tibetan Medicine.
