Preserving and Promoting the Work of Dr. Leon Hammer, MD

Connecting Students,
Practitioners and Patients

Preserve and Promote the richness of this tradition through Education and Community

TheDr. Leon Hammer Legacy Foundation was established to preserve, promote, and further the ideas and teachings of Dr. Leon Hammer, M.D., a world-renowned expert in the field of Chinese medicine.

The Foundation seeks to disseminate Dr. Hammer’s work, educating students, practitioners, patients, and anyone else interested in the achievement of health through natural medicine. In this age of chemical, impersonal healthcare, the ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine, coupled with Dr. Hammer’s unique and brilliant adaptations for our modern life, provides a perfect replacement for ineffective systems of healing.

Through articles, publications, videos and lectures, the Foundation hopes to bring Dr. Hammer’s knowledge and insight to a wider audience, and to ensure that his invaluable contributions to the evolution of medicine are available to future generations.

As a not-for-profit organization, the Foundation relies entirely on public funding from our community of supporters and generous donations of time from our volunteers. Present and past contributors have been motivated by their passion for Dr. Hammer’s work, and their desire to encourage its development for the benefit of people throughout the world.
