The NHAA International Conference on Herbal Medicine is a hugely popular event held every second year.
The 9th such conference, held in March 2015 met and exceeded these standards, with delegates, speakers and sponsors alike joining in a celebration of all things herbal: embracing our traditional roots; challenging our current thinking; and inspiring us to move positively into the future.
For the first time we incorporated the NHAA Awards of Excellence into the event at the Industry Profession Dinner on Saturday night. The night was an unqualified success, recognising those who inspire their colleagues, patients or the community and celebrating with good friends and dancing into the small hours.
The program ran 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 inspired and challenged with topics from traditional to cutting edge, research and clinical, discussions and workshops.
Go to Speakers and Program for all the details.
Copies of the speaker slides and audio recordings of the talks will be available soon and delegates will be informed by email.
