Safe use of Complementary Medicine with Chemotherapy

Join us for a remarkable line up of prominent and widely recognised speakers in the field of oncology and natural medicine.

Presenter Highlight – Dr Janet Schloss

We are very excited to announce that the keynote presentation will be delivered by Dr Janet Schloss; whom has gained wide-spread media attention, as an accomplished researcher she has led a number of ground-breaking studies and has dedicated the past decade to building the evidence-base for integrative and complementary medicine in the oncology field.

During the masterclass, Janet will be discussing her most recent study on the use of medicinal cannabis in brain cancer. In addition, the use of vitamin B12 led to statistically significant reduction in onset and severity of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy.
