Hello Students for Integrative Medicine at UCI, Our names are Josephine Nguyen and Vivian Lam, and we are Co-Presidents of the student group Nutrition, Complementary, & Alternative Medicine (NCAM) at UCLA. We cordially invite you to join us in the *Annual Conference for Integrative Medicine at UCLA* and would love if you could spread the word among the members of SIM at UCI who may be interested in such an opportunity. We strongly encourage students interested in pursuing a career in the healthcare field or in learning about integrated health and wellness to attend. With the growing cost of healthcare and increasing demand for preventative and patient-centered care, it is important for future healthcare professionals to be aware of effective and safe integrative approaches in both healing and wellness. The Annual Conference for Integrative Medicine presents the perfect opportunity to learn about the role of Integrative Medicine (IM) in transforming modern medicine, meet experts in the field, and experience integrative healing methods first-hand. The Conference will be held on* Saturday, February 2, 2013* at the *Neuroscience Research Building Auditorium on UCLA Campus* from *9:00 am - 3:00 pm*. Featured speakers include John Weeks of *The Integrator Blog*, Dr. Ka-Kit Hui from the UCLA Center for East-West Medicine, and Ping Ho, founder of the UCLA Arts and Healing Center. Other features include panels about IM in the clinical setting, IM research and policy, and creative arts therapy in the community. Also registration is free, and breakfast and lunch will be provided!
