NCCAM adds new centers to research program.

The National Institutes of Health's (NIH) National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) has added four new Centers of Excellence for Research on Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CERCs) to its research centers program. The new centers will add to knowledge about complementary and alternative medicine approaches and their potential in treating and preventing diseases and conditions common among Americans, including stress-related illnesses, obesity and metabolic syndrome, cancer and others. The grants provide five years of support and bring the total number of CERCs to 11.
