This is a unique opportunity to hear from Alan and some of the Researchers from the NICM on this important area of Health, especially as we head towards seniority. 3 in 4 Australians use some form of Complementary Medicine as part of their Health Management Plan.
Alan has told me he is including a bit of humour, you have me in suspense, Alan ,😊. It is also a great opportunity to catch up with Classmates.
Classmates who have advised of their attendance so far ,
