Continuing Medical Education

We are currently investigating having this accredited for CME (continuing medical education) points. Check back here for updates.


Meals will be provided on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon. All food will be whole food plant based and with no added oil, and there will be gluten free options. We are happy to accomodate special dietary requests, but please provide these to us at the time of booking your ticket.

Please do not bring your own food to the event.


Cancellation of your ticket in writing before the new year will result in a 75% refund of the ticket price, and after the new year will result in a 50% refund of the ticket price due to the administration and necessary changes with bookings.

We reserve the right to change speakers or lineup in the days leading up to (and potentially day of) the event, which is mainly due to unforseen and sudden unavailability on the speaker’s behalf. We also reserve the right to cancel the conference if needed, due to circumstances beyond our control, and all ticket expenses will be refunded in such a situation.

The conference is not associated with the well known festival Rhythm and Vines.
