The World Federation of Acupuncture-Moxibustion Societies (WFAS) 2015 international conference took place September 25-27, 2015 in Toronto, Ontario. The conference was a great success!
The international conference brought specialists in acupuncture and TCM from across the globe to present their most recent studies and techniques. We are proud to say that 70% of our board was in attendance: Dr. Li, Dr. Franklyn Chen, Dora Poole, Ravee Chen, and Dr. Feng Jia. Both our chapter and our province were well-represented during the oral presentation aspect of the conference. Dr. Diana Li presented her study on the Life-Care Natural Fertility Program, a treatment program developed by her and Dr. Chen. In addition, Dora Poole and Ravee Chen gave presentations on techniques developed by Dr. Li and Dr. Chen.
On behalf of the Nova Scotia chapter of CMAAC, Dr. Diana Tong Li made a speech during the conference’s opening remarks. Dr. Li spoke about the development of acupuncture and TCM in Nova Scotia due to the effort of NS-CMAAC, as well as the importance of professional education to ensure the safe practice of acupuncture and TCM to protect both practitioners and the public and to offer patients the best health care possible.
