With a focus on improving health and wellness, you will explore integrative approaches to a variety of conditions and participate in hands-on workshops. This conference will allow you to move beyond pharmaceutical approaches, as you learn to work collaboratively with patients towards optimal health. Sessions are taught by a diverse faculty and our hope is to provide a space where health care providers from many backgrounds can learn together.
