    Is this open to interested people or just medical folk. Have an avid interest as someone who has benefited enormously from low carb . IAM now a very fit 83 year old in the best shape in a lifetime. What is the cost of tickets should they be available?

    Hi, I have attended the Conference on the Gold Coast in the past, and am so disappointed that I have other commitments that weekend this coming October. Are the sessions taped, and if so, if I register is it possible to have access to recordings after the event? So many wonderful speakers….
    I would appreciate your feedback.
    Many Thanks,
