City of Boston, USA
The Nutrition & Health Conference will be making its home in Boston, Massachusetts this year. First incorporated as a town in 1630, and as a city in 1822, Boston is one of America's oldest cities, with a rich economic and social history. It is home to more 617,000 residents, and is well known for its colonial history, its many institutions of higher education, and professional sports organizations.

The course will be held at the Westin Boston Waterfront (425 Summer St., Boston, MA 02210). The room block at this hotel, however, is already full. Situated in the South Boston Waterfront District, the Westin is minutes from downtown Boston and Logan International Airport. It offers spectacular views of the city skyline and harbor and is in close proximity to a variety of restaurants, shopping, and cultural amenities. A free shuttle offers transportation to/from Boston’s financial district and Faneuil Hall 7 days a week. The complimentary fitness center includes a whirlpool, hot tub, and indoor pool.

The Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine leads the transformation of health care by creating, educating and actively supporting a community that embodies the philosophy and practice of healing-oriented medicine, addressing mind, body and spirit. Integrative medicine is healing-oriented and makes use of conventional and alternative therapies as appropriate. Since its inception, the Center has focused its efforts on three areas: education, clinical care and research, with the primary emphasis on education. We built the Center on the premise that the best way to change a field is to educate the most gifted professionals and place them in settings where they can, in turn, teach others.
