The CPD 2016 lectures will be available to view online soon

Balens 4th CPD Training Event was held at the NEC Birmingham on Monday 23rd May 2016. The event was held in the purpose built Conference Suite on the Mezzanine floor above Hall 6, therefore avoiding some of the noise issues we have had in previous years. 

Previous News:

We have nearly finished finalising the program for the event. We are trying to organise for Anthony Rees from the Natural Health Alliance, whom David Balen met whilst in South Africa, to attend. Anthony has much to say on what is happening at an international level with regards to legislation for Natural Health, and the impacts that this will have for us in the UK. We are very much hoping that he will be able to attend, and details of the final program will be posted as soon as they are available. Please see the updated download to the right for details of current program of speakers who include Seamus Connolly talking on Complementary and Sustainable Healthcare in the UK and Europe: who can secure its future? and Professor David Peters who will be discussing what might complementary therapies’ role be in a future bio-psych-social system of care? In his talk Beyond Peak Medicine.
