Event description

Description

Australians are passionate consumers of complementary medicine, spending over $4 billion annually.

It’s estimated that seven out of ten Australians use some form of complementary product or therapy as part of their personal health approach.

However, there is ongoing debate about the effectiveness and safety of complementary medicine and its role in healthcare.

Our panel of speakers will compare Eastern vs Western concepts, discuss the growing use of complementary medicine in Australia, plus share the latest research evidence on how complementary therapies may be integrated with conventional medicine to support the treatment of illness and disease.

How can we blend the best of East and West? Join us at the Pathfinders’ “East Meets West Forum” to find out.
