Dear Friends,

Further to documents already sent to you relative to
the above conference slated for July 20-21, 2001 in
Accra, Ghana.

The July 2001 conference is open to  doctors,
professors, paramedics, nurses and students in the
practice and study of both conventional and
alternative/complementary medicine in continuation of
the process of dialogue and education which begun at
the July 2000 International Conference on Traditional
Medicine in Ghana.

In addition to the 2 days conference (agenda of which
will be circulated after May 15, 2000 - when abstracts
from foreign participants shall have been collected),
we have developed pre-conference and post-conference
tours to sites which have scientific, historical,
cultural and spiritual bearings to buttress the
educational experience to be gained from the
conference itself.

Medical institutions, doctors and nurses are
encouraged to offer voluntary services and medical
supplies to specific institutions as indicated in the
tentative itinerary appearing at the bottom of this
email.

Practitioners, nurses and students wishing to present
papers are encouraged to submit abstracts having
direct bearing on the theme of the conference to
Africa First LLC not later than May 15, 2001. Papers
must be 5-20 pages (A4 format, double spacing, font

presentation.

We are working with Dr. Ellen Tattelman of Albert
Einstein College of Medicine in New York, who herself
participated in the July 2000 conference in getting
Albert Einstein to award credits to practitioners,
nurses and students who participate in forthcoming
conferences and seminars for the purposes of
continuing education.

A team of seasoned medical professors and authors in
the teaching and practice of both conventional and
alternative medicines, including Ellen Tattelman MD,
