Ann Fonfa, founder of the Annie Appleseed Project attended this meeting in Minneapolis, MN. One special thing about Minnesota is that visits to phyicians by pharmaceutical representatives are strictly limited.
And not surprisingly this is the state with the lowest Medicare costs.
This conference is not solely devoted to cancer but reports on the Consortium of Academnic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine.
Consortium mission: to help transform medicine and healthcare through rigorous scientific studies, new models of clinical care, and innovative educational programs that integrate biomedicine, the complexity of human beings, the intrinsic nature of healing and the rich diversity of therapeutic systems.
Interestingly "full texts of all session abstracts can be found in the April/May issue of Integrative Medicine: A Clinician's Journal.
Wednesday May 13, opening day for the full conference, started with a choice of 6:30 AM Tai Chi or Yoga. I took the Tai Chi class which was interesting. I felt some energy tingles while taking it but just as tired by the end of the day as I usually do.
