Symposium

Understanding the healing power of integrative medicine

The goal of this symposium is to provide an opportunity for medical professionals to explore how and when they can use evidence-based complementary medical therapies such as acupuncture and meditation when caring for cancer patients.

Integrative oncology is a field of cancer care that combines the best of conventional medical treatments with complementary therapies to improve patients’ health and quality of life.

We anticipate that this will be the first of a series of annual integrative medicine events.

Continuing Medical Education credits for this event are offered to physicians, advanced practice clinicians, and registered nurses. All other practitioners are welcome to register without continuing medical education credits. We look forward to seeing you there! 

Keynote speaker: Andrew Weil, MD
