AGENDA & SPEAKERS’ LIST TO FOLLOW
We have reached a crisis of health. There is a need for a new paradigm that can lead us to greater support for our health and well-being. We need to develop a model that is grounded in more natural approaches, which reflect our connection to and dependence on the Earth.
