2nd Congress on International Traditional Medicine in Vienna

From June 19-21, 2020, we will again build bridges between modern medicine and different cultures from around the world and their respective systems of traditional medicine - from Traditional European, Chinese, Tibetan, and Persian Medicine to Ayurveda and various forms of South American systems of natural medicine.

The second ITM congress in Vienna will be held under the theme:

"Civilizational health through traditional medicine -

solutions to the impasse of civilizational diseases"

At the Don Bosco Haus in Vienna's 13th district you will be able to enjoy two full days of exciting lectures and workshops, where participants can get to know the speakers better, as well as a musical evening, which will take us all on a journey around the world.

There will also again be an interesting exhibitor area, where unique (natural) products used in alternative medicine will be presented.

To get an impression of the lectures at the 1st ITM congress in 2018, have a look at this short compilation:

The 2020 congress will take place at the youth and adult education center of the Salesians of Don Boscos. The centre includes a restaurant, where organic and vegetarian food is served, as well as a café, which can be visited during the short breaks.

You will also have the option to book a room at the centre, if you want a place close to the congress.
