No matter where your interests lie within the field of integrative health, I think you’ll find much to learn, discuss, and share at the in-person 2022 International Congress on Integrative Medicine and Health (ICIMH), to be held in Phoenix, Arizona, from May 23 through May 26, 2022. 

ICIMH, which is convened by the Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine and Health, brings together researchers, health care practitioners, educators, and policy advocates from around the world. Individuals from all disciplines and professions engaged in integrative health are welcome. The Congress provides great opportunities for cross-disciplinary networking, along with an extensive schedule of presentations on cutting-edge research, educational innovations, clinical delivery models, and policy challenges. 

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) has been an active partner supporting ICIMH and planning interesting sessions for many years. We have been working behind the scenes for several months now to develop some exciting ICIMH symposia and pre-Congress workshops.

More information about the sessions listed below can be found on the ICIMH website. We encourage you to register before Friday, April 22, 2022, for discounted rates.
