NIIM Symposium ‘Integrative Medicine – The Art & Science’ in review

Date: 30-11-2018

Many thanks to everyone who joined us for our 5th Annual Symposium recently. What a fabulous program with 30 International & Australian speakers covering the key themes of Cancer, Pain, Inflammation, Paediatrics & Children’s Health, Brain Health, Cognition, Dementia & Healthy Ageing.

The program included keynote lectures, interactive workshops, panel discussions, Q&A sessions and scientific abstracts. Delegates were also offered energising Tai Chi or stretching exercises during lunch breaks on both days of the symposium.

This year we also included an optional half-day Masterclass on “Integrated Management of Cancer: Emerging Principles & Practical Issues”

The success of this event would not be possible without our incredible speakers, sponsors, delegates, staff and volunteers. We are truly grateful for your commitment and support!
