The European Congress for Integrative Medicine aims to bring together medical practitioners, healthcare professionals, therapists, researchers and health politicians to facilitate the advancement of healthcare systems that combine conventional medicine with evidence informed lifestyle, complementary and traditional approaches to achieving optimal health and healing.
