Integrative Healthcare Symposium announces call for speakers

The Integrative Healthcare Symposium is accepting proposals to present at the 2020 Integrative Healthcare Symposium, which will be held February 20-22 at the Hilton Midtown in New York City.

The attendee audience includes: Medical Doctors, Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine, Naturopathic Doctors, Licensed Acupuncturists and Practitioners of Traditional Oriental Medicine, Doctors of Chiropractic Medicine, Physicians Assistants, Dietitians, Nutritionists, Licensed Herbalists, Massage Therapists, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists, Physical Therapists, Psychiatrists, Registered Nurses, and Health Coaches. All disciplines are encouraged to submit.

Each year, the Integrative Healthcare Symposium staff and its advisory board revisits the specifics for this request for proposals based on prior experience, taking into account the rapidly changing world of healthcare. The following factors guided the development of this call:

  • Your session must pass rigorous CME guidelines for approval by the AACME
  • To enhance human and environmental health and wellbeing by advancing awareness and understanding of integrative healthcare principles
  • An increased realization of the importance of the patient and family as key partners in care
  • To build networks that provides opportunities for collaboration among many health-related disciplines
  • To share your perspectives and knowledge with like-minded individuals from diverse backgrounds

The Integrative Healthcare Symposium is looking for current topics, not topics supporting old information. Preference will be given to new scientific advancements, ideas, and ways of thinking. Clinical take-way is desired. Individuals with pending book releases on integrative or functional topics prior to February 2020 are encouraged to submit. In addition, there is a special interest in advanced courses for Naturopathic Doctors.

Submissions will be accepted until April 30 at 11:59 p.m. EST. All abstracts are subjected to peer review and are expected to meet the standards of academic and scientific excellence. If not rejected by the peer reviewers, submissions will then be considered by an anonymous expert panel.
