CONNECT 2022 - Naturopathic Medicine in Conflict Zones | Decker Weiss, NMD, FASA




Cost: Non-members: $65 | Member: $35 | Student: $15
As a Naturopathic physician with a desire to launch a medical NGO without obligation to follow standard protocols I faced both personal and professional obstacles from the mission itself to execution. As I progressed in this process I found the need to embrace my Naturopathic core as a lifeline in my goal to create positive change in the world. Over the years I have performed medical clinics from Iraq to Ukraine. I have presented new data at Oxfords College for the Resolution for Intractable Conflict (CRIC) and other leading universities and institutions so it appears that the world agrees with our mission to resolve intractable conflict and bring the best integrated models of trauma and overall care to the people who need it most.
