Naturopathic Symposium 2023

The largest event in the NHAA calendar is on its way – the Naturopathic Symposium 2023 brought to you by NHAA Engage. Our curated program of presentations, fireside chats, panel discussions and workshops will be brimming with clinical pearls and wisdom delivered by some of the most skilled and respected Naturopaths from Australia and internationally.

The NHAA are delighted to be hosting the Naturopathic Symposium 2023 in Melbourne on May 27th and 28th.   

The Symposium will bring together the world’s best and brightest practitioners, academics, industry professionals and experts in the field of naturopathic and Western herbal medicine.  We received 108 abstract submissions for presentations and are deep in the process of evaluating them to create an incredible line-up. Our job has not been easy as the quality of submissions is outstanding, with myriad fascinating takes on our theme: ‘On Firm Ground: Grounded in Science – Grounded in Tradition – Grounded in Practice’.
