PRESENTATION: Meet the Physicians for Ancestral Health

Physicians for Ancestral Health is an international organization for medical doctors (MDs, DOs, and international equivalents), medical students and residents of all specialties, who support and advocate a standard of care that combines conventional Western medical ideals with ancestral health principles, serving to improve the health and well-being of our patients.

Incorporated as a non-profit in 2015, we are a growing group of physicians from various specialties (family medicine, internal medicine, psychiatry, sports medicine and rehab, anesthesiology, neurology, ob/gyn to name a few) from many countries (USA, Canada, UK, Norway, Germany, Australia…). Medical students from USA, Canada, and Norway have been active members of the PAH as well.

In this session you will learn more about our group and our collaboration with other healthcare professionals and general public. We also would love to build closer relationship with New Zealanders.

  • Learn about the mission and organizational goals of the Physicians for Ancestral Health.
  • Virtually meet some of the PAH members.
  • Find out about current initiatives of the PAH.
