About Kath Berry
Katherine (Kath) Berry, BHSc, MSc, is an author and acupuncture educator with over 25 years of clinical experience.
Having commenced a Bachelor’s degree in TCM in Australia in 1995, after graduating in 2000, Kath spent time working in several hospitals in China. She then returned to Australia and completed a Master of Science Research degree (MSc) in drug and alcohol addiction medicine at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). Her thesis was based on a clinical trial she set up between UTS and Sydney South West Area Health Service. As Australia’s first ever hospital-based acupuncture clinical trial, the study required two years of preparation across three ethics jurisdictions and paved the way for further collaboration between TCM university departments and hospitals.
