The AIMA Conference is New Zealand’s leading event for the integrative medicine community.  A ‘must-do’ for all GPs, medical specialists, allied health practitioners, researchers, educators, students, and health professionals who want to learn about and understand how integrative medicine can be used to prevent and manage chronic and complex diseases.

The theme for 2023 is Building Resilience: empowering ourselves in challenging times and will include presentations from a host of charismatic and knowledgable integrative medicine experts from across the globe.
