FX MEDICINE PODCAST BONUS: Dr Penny Caldicott and her journey to Integrative Medicine *AIMA conference special*

Our medical system is broken and patients are looking, indeed demanding, more integrative care from a diverse array of health professionals.

In today’s podcasts, Dr Penny Caldicott, President of the Australasian Integrative Medicine Association (AIMA) shares the evolution of her thriving clinic which embraces a team of health practitioners from all walks of life and integrates seamlessly with the orthodox healthcare system.

She also showcases the upcoming AIMA conference which was held in Melbourne, July 2015. The topic of the conference was "Taking the Pulse of Integrative Medicine”. AIMA conferences aim to educate Integrative Medicine practitioners in safe, effective natural therapies, whilst maintaining a pinnacle standard of medical care.

Dr Penny Caldicott is an integrative medicine GP and the founder and a director of Invitation to Health. She has helped to create a nurturing environment in which the team offers patient treatment that respects and integrates the best of evidence based conventional and complementary medicine.

Penny is passionate about integrative medicine and has been involved with a number of organisations to champion integrative medicine to other health practitioners, to the government and in the public space. She believes that the integrative medicine focus on prevention of disease can play a significant role in turning back chronic disease in Australia. She is currently the President of the Australasian Integrative Medicine Association.
