To foster greater access to the benefits of Qi Gong and Tai Chi, the Archstone Foundation provided funding to the National Blueprint Office at the University of Illinois, the National Council on the Aging, and the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi to convene a National Expert Meeting on Qi Gong and Tai Chi at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The primary goal was to address the challenges of integrating Qi Gong and Tai Chi programs into the aging network and to identify the necessary components of an effective program to meet the needs of diverse populations with varying functional abilities.
