ACNEM 2020 Conference: Environmental Disruptors - Rising to the Challenge (Melbourne) on 19–21 June 2020


posted by Research Admin 1 on 15 November 2019


The ACNEM team have spent nearly a year preparing for the ACNEM 2020 Conference: Environmental Disruptors – Rising to the Challenge… only to be disrupted by a global pandemic!

In response to this pandemic, the ACNEM Board has made the decision to transform the 2020 Conference to an online event, to become a dynamic interactive experience, facilitating new learning innovations and accessible formats to suit our audience. 

By taking the ACNEM Conference online we can now open our doors to the world. We are excited about the possibilities this affords our members and participants.

ACNEM is committed to supporting you to be part of the solution to global chronic illness and environmental disruption. Real answers are now available and there is an urgent need to expand the network of qualified professionals to share this knowledge.

We will be in touch again soon to share more information about the new format and refined program.



The Pre-Conference Workshop programme has just been announced on our Conference website. From Paddock to Plate to Person features Dr Denise Furness and clinical nutritionist Warren Maginn and will focus on environmental toxins, the detoxfication process and how our inherited genes may make us more susceptible to negative health effects of various chemicals and toxins.

The Main Conference program will be announced in the coming weeks. In the interim, ACNEM President Dr Ron Ehrlich had a quick catch up with one of our Conference speakers, Vicki Kotsirilos AM, to discuss some of what she will speak about in her presentation on Urban Air Pollution. A particularly relevant topic, given the poor air quality Sydney residents are currently experiencing.

 Over 11,000 scientists declared last week that we all face “untold suffering due to the climate crisis’’ unless there are major transformations to our global society. ACNEM joins their voices in the call for action. The 2020 ACNEM Conference: Environmental Disruptors – Rising to the Challenge will bring together world leading presenters to explore the latest research and discuss what can be done to address these disruptors from a nutritional and environmental medicine perspective.


The 2020 ACNEM Conference: Environmental Disruptors - Rising to the Challenge, brings together world leading presenters to explore the latest research on the environmental factors affecting human health. Researchers and clinicians will address environmental disruptors and conditions now commonly seen in clinical practice.
