Please help us to spread the word…

Integrative Oncology UK Conference 2021

We are trying to spread the word amongst oncologists, surgeons, nurses and other cancer healthcare professionals to encourage them to attend the new Integrative Oncology UK 2021 conference that is being held on 15 May 2021.

The conference is chaired Dr Catherine Zollman, the medical lead at Penny Brohn UK with the support of her fellow committee members from the British Society for Integrative Oncology (BSIO).  The goal of the BSIO and the conference is that integrative healthcare should be available and delivered seamlessly to all those whose lives are affected by cancer.

If you know of anyone who might benefit from attending this professional conference we would greatly appreciate it if you can help spread the word.

We are taking bookings for Doctor support, Counselling, Nutrition therapy, and Exercise therapy.

Online, and 1:1 sessions are made possible by your generosity. They are run entirely on donations. We have no set charges, we simply ask you to give what you can – if you can.
