Hawaii Doc Talks was conceived of in 2014 to address the need for continuing education requirements to be met by naturopathic physicians in Hawai’i.  In an attempt to disrupt the prevailing PowerPoint paradigm, the conference is modeled after TED Talks – 25 minute presentations meant to engage and inspire, beyond simply educating.  It’s an opportunity for creating community among fellow healthcare professionals as well.  Held on a rotating basis in January or February between the islands of Hawai’i, Maui, and Kauai, it’s also an invitation for those in colder locations to find some warm sunny skies and ocean in the middle of winter.  The conference schedule is half days, with optional workshops the other half, to provide time for rest, rejuvenation, and recreation in the many ways that Hawai’i can uniquely afford. 


We welcome you to our island home.
