Professor Nithi Mahanonda, M.D., FRACP, FACC, FSCAI, FCSANZ, CEO of Piyavate Hospital and chairman of the conference organising committee said, We hope to achieve two main goals at this conference. The first is to strengthen and support Integrative Medicine in Asia by understanding ways in which we can develop the current health system to provide more effective means of diagnosis and treatment. This can be achieved by looking at the way Integrative Medicine is practised around the world.

Our second goal is to demonstrate the benefits of Integrated Medicine in our society with exchange of ideas and to provide a forum for further innovation and development. We have planned many activities for delegates at this first-ever event in Asia, such as meditation, yoga, qi gong workshops and many more. This conference does not only broaden our knowledge of Integrative Medicine, but to allow delegates to fully experience it.

Integrative Medicine combines conventional Western medicine with safe, evidence-based complementary and alternative therapies to focus on the whole person to achieve optimal wellness where the patient also has a greater sense of personal control.
