The International Integrative Chinese Medicine Conference (IICMC), came about when two powerhouse Chinese medicine practitioners decided to join together on a project that inspires unity, support, collaboration, and sharing knowledge in our profession. Kirsten Wolfe and Clare Pyers share a passion for teaching and mentoring Chinese medicine practitioners and Acupuncturists, and the 2018 Supercharge Your Fertility Practice conference was a natural extension of their philosophy of supporting other practitioners to enhance their clinical skills and practice outcomes.
If we see something that needs to get done, we will get in and do it. 6 years ago we saw that Chinese medicine CPD offerings in Australia could use a massive overhaul. We really wanted to attend a big event, with industry greats, sharing amazing clinical insights, run well with heaps of fun, laughter and tax-friendly hanging out with colleagues. Right here in Australia. So - we created the IICMC.
We know how to throw a party. We had 250 folks join us for the first one in 2018, a 3 day "love fest" of every person laughing, learning and enjoying every single minute. So many times we hear "this is the best event we have ever been to". Those who didn't come had massive FOMO.
We are doing it again, in just a few week's time. We have another fabulous lineup for you. 3 days of women's health, fertility, pregnancy and post partum.
But it was never going to be a forever thing. We were only ever going to run it a handful of times. If you know us, you know we always have something else we are planning, so this is not goodbye to Kirst and Clare collaborations. But it will be goodbye to IICMC.
This is going to be one hell of a farewell. If you have even given 1% consideration to joining us - you need to make it happen.
When we say we aren’t going to do it again - it’s not a cheesy marketing ploy - we mean it. We don’t want you to miss out. We would so love to have you with us, to soak up 3 days of face to face interaction and learning bliss.
Kirsten & Clare.
