Biotherapy Conference

November 9-10, 2019 | NUNM Campus

Biotherapy is the clinical application of live organisms for health. It encompasses a wide range of therapies to include Maggot debridement, Phage therapy, Bee venom, and even service animals. Medicine is currently facing multiple problems without good solutions. Antibiotic resistance, chronic pain, and polypharmacy concerns top the list. Medical experts will discuss how Biotherapies offer several methodologies to address these concerns with low risk and high efficacy. This is a first of its kind conference in the northwest which will provide an overview of the main therapies, clinical application, evidence, and rationale.
