Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Speaks at Country’s First Cutting-Edge CME Program for Autism, in Colorado. 

Dear Colleague,

You are cordially invited to participate in the AutismOne 2017 Continuing Medical Education Program, a joint initiative of AutismOne, the American Association of Integrative Medicine, and the American Academy of Pediatric Osteopathy.

This one-of-a-kind educational program aims to educate MDs and other healthcare professionals in state-of-the-art approaches to integrative pediatrics and current science as it applies to autism spectrum disorders. This includes a review of evidence-based approaches and examination of cutting-edge and innovative therapies currently being researched. This educational offering will create and enhance a knowledge base in the area of integrative pediatrics for the healthcare professional. The knowledge gained will increase the practitioner's ability to understand current complementary therapies the patient is using as well as to augment the practitioner’s ability to advise or implement integrative approaches that will benefit patients. The innovative program design offers multiple learning formats, including lectures, Q&A sessions, panels, and “Think Tank” sessions. The design of the conference is highly interactive to allow for scientific discussion and debate so that alternative points of view may be considered. 

Please join us for this outstanding CME event!
