residents and visitors.

opportunity to try a variety of activities, including being diagnosed through
their pulse and consulting with Hanbok-clad Asian medicine specialists. Other
programs include learning how to wrap medicines, draw pictures from old medical
texts and drink herbal teas. Up to 40 people can participate on each day of the
event, and will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis.
