Annual Conference

The Science and Clinical Application of Integrative Holistic Medicine, our Annual Conference, attracts many types of practitioners, and is appropriate for both newcomers to integrative holistic medicine and seasoned practitioners. The course is well recognized for its evidence based, academically rigorous content, presented in a thoughtful and holistic manner. Participants quite typically comment that the experience at the Annual Conference was “transformational” relative to their personal and professional lives.

Opportunities for networking and personal renewal help to deepen the learning experience, and participants also benefit greatly through personal contact with the Annual Conference speakers and the ABIHM Board of Directors throughout the week.

2014 Pre-Registration is open! The planning committee is in the process of developing the conference program. We anticipate publishing the brochures May 2014.
