The NHAA International Conference on Herbal Medicine has been a hugely popular event held every three years. Due to this popularity, we are now excited to present the conference biannually. This is a premier event attracting over 500 delegates including national and international practitioners of Western herbal medicine, naturopathy, allied health and integrative medicine as well as students, nurses, researchers and academics.

For the first time this year, we are incorporating the NHAA Awards of Excellence into the event, recognising those who inspire their colleagues, patients or the community. Nominations are now closed and the Awards will be presented at the Industry Profession Dinner on Saturday night.

Speakers and Program

The program runs over a packed three days with something for everyone. Our three fantastic international keynote speakers (Dr Michael McMullen, Dr Joe Pizzorno, and Jonathan Treasure) along with a wealth of other international and local speakers will inspire and challenge you with topics from traditional to cutting edge, research and clinical, discussions and workshops.
