According to public information, Deng Tietao was named Deng Xicai, born in October 1916 in Kaiping City, Guangdong Province, and a member of the Communist Party of China. He is a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine, professor for life at Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, supervisor of doctoral students, and executive director of the All-China Society of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
He was the deputy director and vice president of the Teaching Affairs Department of Guangzhou College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the director of Deng Tietao Research Institute of Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the former member of the First Drug Evaluation Committee of the Ministry of Health, and the lifelong director of the Chinese Society of Traditional Chinese Medicine. He is also a member of the Fourth and Fifth CPPCC Consultative Conference of Guangdong Province.
For 80 years, Deng Tietao has provided a Chinese medicine program for the treatment of myasthenia gravis, a worldwide problem. When SARS broke out in 2002, he first put forward the plan of Chinese medicine to prevent and cure SARS, which was praised as the oldest anti-SARS meritorious minister. In 2003, he was hired by the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine as the head of the expert advisory group of anti-SARS. He was awarded the Special Contribution Award of Chinese Medicine against SARS by the Chinese Society of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
On July 1, 2009, Deng Tietao was jointly evaluated as the first master of Chinese medicine by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, the former Ministry of Health and the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
According to the Yangcheng Evening News, Deng Tietao wrote in his will: The greatest legacy I can leave to my children and grandchildren is benevolence and benevolence, serving the people wholeheartedly.
Professor Liu Xiaobin, a disciple of Deng Tietao and deputy director of Deng Tietao Research Institute, said in an interview that while his bed was dying, Deng Lao was still thinking of doing traditional Chinese medicine and announced that the award-winning funds of Qihuang Prize of Beijing College of Traditional Chinese Medicine would be used to treat myasthenia gravis and cardiovascular disease.
Reporters noted that in order to promote and protect traditional Chinese medicine, Deng Tietao has written to the central leadership five times in recent decades at a critical moment in the development of traditional Chinese medicine.
In the 1980s, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) declined over a period of time. Deng Tietao was engaged in the health care work of Marshal Xu Qian. In 1984, he proposed to Xu Qian that I help you see a doctor, you need to save traditional Chinese medicine.
In his letter to Xu Qian, he wrote: For quite a long time, traditional Chinese medicine has not been paid attention to, and there has been a lack of successors and skills. If we dont spare no effort to rescue traditional Chinese medicine, it will be too late to excavate it when the old Chinese medicine is old. The development of traditional medicine has been written into the Constitution, but we have lost too much time. We must take decisive measures to make it revive at an early date.
Xu read forward and added comments to the letter. Hu Yaobang and Qiao Shi also gave instructions. Finally, Cui Yueli, then Minister of Health, gave instructions for only seven days.
According to the Peoples Daily, Hu Yaobangs instructions at that time were to seriously solve the problems of traditional Chinese medicine. Soon after, the State Council agreed to establish the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The second was in 1990. At that time, the central government planned to streamline its institutions, and the Chinese Medicine Administration planned to streamline them. On August 3, Deng Tietao joined seven other well-known veteran Chinese medicine practitioners in the country and wrote to Jiang Zemin, then General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, requesting that the functions of the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine can only be increased, not weakened.
On October 9 of that year, I received a reply: I agreed to strengthen the functions of the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine in administering the work of Chinese medicine throughout the country. Eventually, the Chinese Medicine Administration was saved. This event is called Eight Lao Shu in the field of traditional Chinese medicine.
In 1998, the tide of merging Western Hospital Schools with Colleges and Universities of Traditional Chinese Medicine rose throughout the country. Deng Tietao and seven other veteran Chinese doctors wrote to Zhu Rongji, then Premier of the State Council: Chinese medicine is a promising field of knowledge economy, we must not ignore it; Chinese medicine is small, Western medicine is big, reform must not grasp the big and relax the small.
In November of that year, veteran Chinese medicine doctors received a reply from the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Later, the merger of Chinese and Western hospitals and schools was urgently stopped. This incident is called the second Eight Laos Letter.
In April 2003, during the fight against SARS, he wrote to Hu Jintao, then General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, and Wu Yi, then Vice Premier of the State Council, suggesting that traditional Chinese medicine should intervene in the fight against SARS. He wrote: Chinese medicine is a arsenal and should play a role in the treatment of SARS.
A week later, he received a phone call from Shejing, then Vice Minister of the Ministry of Health and director of the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine: Your letter has been received by the General Secretary and his instructions have been given. Thank you!
In 2004, Deng Tietao, then Premier Wen Jiabao of the State Council, put forward his views on the management system of traditional Chinese medicine. In 2006, when the farce of abolishing traditional Chinese medicine spread, the elderly voiced again to defend traditional Chinese medicine.
In the inheritance of traditional Chinese medicine, Deng Tietao has been practicing himself. Since 1978, he has enrolled postgraduates. He has trained 27 postgraduates, 15 doctoral students and one postdoctoral student. In 2004, at the age of 88, he also took two disciples, Ding Lei, CEO of Netease and Liang Dong, host.
During the hospitalization, he had a few words that impressed me deeply: the first sentence: to leave life and die outside the hospital. The second sentence: A man with a clear conscience is a real gentleman. His disciple Professor Liu Xiaobin recalled.
