Audience
Western medicine providers including: physicians, nurses, physician assistants, nurse
practitioners, pharmacists, mental health professionals, dietitians and nutritionists,
psychologists, and others; and Complementary-Alternative medicine providers including
chiropractors, acupuncturists, naturopathic physicians, Chinese medicine practitioners,
massage therapists, and others.



Description
Complementary and integrative medicine continues to be highly utilized by the general
public in the United States. Approximately forty percent of middle aged adults and fifty
percent of older adults use some type of complementary or integrative medicine alongside
conventional treatments; and the trend continues to increase. At an escalating rate, patients
seek out specially trained providers such as naturopathic physicians, chiropractors, dieticians,
nutritionists, Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners, and others. Patients often even
design their own integrated medicine care plans. With this trend, it is vital that medical
professionals understand how and when these modalities can be beneficially synchronized
to improve patients’ health and wellbeing.
This knowledge-based conference will provide a forum for professionals trained in Western
medicine to explore evidence-based CAM modalities and dialogue with professionals who
use these modalities in everyday practice. Experts at this conference will share perspectives
and approaches with CAM and Western practitioner peers regarding select, commonly
seen, hard-to treat medical conditions. As always, the conference will seek to highlight
therapeutic approaches to healthcare that are evidence-based, use the power of patient
provider relationship, and demonstrate the collaborative possibilities between allopathic,
integrative and CAM providers.
The conference will feature Dr. Patch Adams, who will share his wisdom on the power of
living a joyful life, and Dr. Alan Gaby, nutritional medicine expert and author of the newly
released textbook, Nutritional Medicine. Please join us to explore the power of integrating
Western medicine and complementary/alternative medicine, both in clinical practice and
in effective relationship development for optimum health.
Objectives
Upon completion of this knowledge-based conference, attendees will be able to:
 • Express how developing a joyful yet socially aware personal approach to life
   and patient care can impact their interaction at all levels, personal-societal-global,
   powerfully and positively informing their interactions with others including the
   provider-patient relationship
 • Identify specific ways nutritional therapeutic approaches can be a potent tool for
   healing as well as for maintaining health and wellness
 • Describe and evaluate at least three of these CAM modalities: Chinese medicine for
   cancer treatment, Tai Chi for arthritis management, biofeedback for anxiety and stress
   reduction, exercise as medicine, somatic experiencing for the treatment of trauma,
   herbal therapy, chiropractic care, homeopathy
 • Describe how integration of evidence-based complementary therapies with
   conventional medical care can impact patient care and outcome in positive ways
   for patients and providers



Keynote Presenters
                         Patch Adams, MD, is a nationally known speaker on wellness,
                         laughter, and humor as well as on health care and health care
                         systems. He approaches the issues of personal, community,
                         and global health with zestful exuberance, according to Time
                         Magazine. Dr. Adams believes that the most revolutionary act
                         one can commit in our world is to be happy. He believes that
laughter, joy and creativity are an integral part of the healing process and therefore true
health care must incorporate such life.

Doctors and patients in his model relate to each other on the basis of mutual trust, and
patients receive plenty of time from their doctors. Allopathic doctors and practitioners
of alternative medicine will work side by side. If you think that all sounds like a utopian
impossibility, it isn’t. Patch and his colleagues practiced medicine at the Gesundheit Institute
together in West Virgina that way for 12 years in what he calls their pilot project.




                   Alan Gaby, MD, is the author of Nutritional Medicine, a textbook
                   designed to teach healthcare practitioners how to use nutritional
                   therapy as an alternative or adjunct to conventional medicine. Dr. Gaby
                   received his undergraduate degree from Yale University, his M.S. in
                   biochemistry from Emory University, and his M.D. from the University
                   of Maryland. He was in private practice for 17 years, specializing in
                   nutritional medicine. He is past-president of the American Holistic
                   Medical Association and gave expert testimony to the White House
Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine on the cost-effectiveness of
nutritional supplements.
