| Update Ayuveda|| |
25 th to 27 th November, 2010 Dr. Jivraj Mehta Auditorium, Seth gsmc0 & kem0 Hospital, Mumbai.
Update Ayurveda is an international conference held every 4 years to review major national and international developments in the field. In the past, it has generated great enthusiasm among students, practitioners, teachers and research workers in both academia and industry - and among the modern medicine fraternity as well.
The theme of this year's conference, "Bridging Therapeutic Gaps", emphasizes the conference's aim to bring together practitioners from modern medicine and Ayurveda to share experiences in their own fields, and so start to bridge the gap between the different disciplines. It is hoped that reflective deliberations will accelerate the development of integrative practice to the benefit of patients everywhere. The various sessions concern clinical successes backed by scientific and clinical evidence.
A preconference workshop will be held to improve scientific writing, and, to further encourage younger researchers, there will be a special free research session featuring both oral and poster presentations.
