The 2018 IM Network Forum convened 250 integrative medicine researchers, clinicians and educators at Harvard Medical School, J.B. Martin Conference Center. Delegates, undeterred by poor weather, arrived from local, national, and international institutions to listen to expert speakers and take advantage of this opportunity to connect with the integrative medicine community.
Thank you to all who attended. We look forward to your feedback in the Post-Event Survey (delivered via e-mail to all registered attendees). Videos of the conference proceedings will be posted online soon.
