We are excited to have Rachel Roberts and Dr Alex Tournier as our Keynote Speakers at AHMC 2018.
Their contribution to the Australian campaign to overturn the NHMRC report has made Rachel and Alex household names in the Australian homœopathy community. It will be an honour to have them in Australia in person and to learn about their work at the Homeopathy Research Institute which provide much needed reliable and academically sound homœopathic research. They are as excited to be coming to Australia in October 2018 as we are to be hosting them.
