The Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors presents Health Fusion 2013.
From June 7-9, 2013, in Ottawa, Canada, CAND presents Doctors Connect: The Integrative Treatment of Chronic Inflammatory Conditions.
The conference will host licensed health care professionals and students as they come together to explore key research and findings on the topic of assessment, diagnosis and treatment options for chronic inflammatory conditions.
Interactive breakout sessions will take place over the three-day conference outlining topics such as, Exploring the Frontiers of Inflammation: newly discovered triggers of the inflammatory response, presented by Dr. David Lescheid, PhD, ND, The Role of Herbs in Pain Management for Common Chronic Disorders, presented by Kerry Bone, B.Sc, Dip Phyto, and An Integrative Solution to Inflammatory Bowel Disease, presented by Dr. Neil McKinney, ND, among many other presentations.
In accordance with the conference, Dr. Brian Goldman, M.D. will be presenting at a public event Friday evening called Your Body Your Choice, on the topic of becoming an informed healthcare consumer.
Dr. Goldman, MD, Mount Sinai ER Doctor, Medical Watchdog, Author and CBC Radio Host, with “The Straight Goods on Your Health Care”, will discuss chronic conditions and the challenges the current health care system has in dealing with chronic disease.
He will address a preventative approach to wellness, highlighting how to personalize care and engage in disease prevention, discussing how Naturopathic Doctors are improving the health of Canadians and providing support educating and maintaining health and wellness.
While the conference and aforementioned public event takes place in Ottawa, we are writing about it to highlight the national scope of education and practice of Naturopathic Medicine.
Having just seen the completion of Naturopathic Medicine week May 6-12, 2013, Health Fusion 2013 is timely in supporting the momentum of Naturopathic treatment education.
We believe in wellness education and empowering families to take action and prevention in their wellness, living long, happy healthy lives.
