Dr. Andrew Weil states that it is time to call for a restoration of the focus of medicine on health and healing and emphasize the centrality of the patient-physician relationship. The National Center for Complementary & Alternative Medicine, part of the US National Institutes of Health, found that in 2002, 62.1% of adults in the US had used some form of CAM in the past 12 months and 75% across lifespan.
This annual Congress is one of the few venues that combines Eastern modalities with a Western scientific paradigm for understanding how to incorporate these practices into healthcare and consumer health education. The faculty will be complemented by celebrities Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa and Dr. Sharyn Wynters, as well as many other experts from Italy, Romania, Croatia, Japan, England, and other parts of the world. The scientific presentations will be enhanced by experiential, hands-on sessions. Parts of the program will be live-streamed worldwide.
Learn about alternative & complementary medicine

As we struggle with effective, cost efficient ways to improve health, this Congress offers a unique opportunity to learn from those who have refined the art and science of Qigong and Traditional Chinese Medicine and those who have been successful in studying its effects. The use of multiple concurrent sessions enables you to select those topics of most interest to you. The Saturday evening Gala will be a festive cultural performance of the martial arts, dance, recognition of outstanding masters, and music.
