Integrative medicine is the practice of medicine that reaffirms the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole person, and is informed by evidence. Integrative medicine includes many disciplines, types of practitioners, and therapeutic approaches; the evidence base is complex and growing quickly. The International Congress on Integrative Medicine & Health focuses on the evidence base in the practice of integrative medicine. We expect more than 1,200 researchers, clinicians, and trainees from around the world to attend. The congress organizers invite individuals from all disciplines and professions engaged in integrative medicine and health to attend.

The congress will showcase original scientific research through keynote and plenary sessions, oral and poster presentations, and innovative sessions. Research areas to be presented and discussed include basic science, clinical trials, lifestyle and prevention, methodology, health services, cost effectiveness, and education.
