The Korean team explored our unique interdisciplinary coordination of rehabilitation medicine, our UNC Health Care Rehabilitation Center, and our research into the efficacy of Asian medicine for rehabilitation. The group, which included doctors, medical journalists and architects, also visited the neighboring Children's Hospital and the new Cancer Hospital to gather ideas about architectural options for their hospital.
