  1. Dear dr Taqi, it was really kind of you to reply me in my query for atending the seminar. I had a very great time and learnd and shared knowledge and experience. I am very interested in writing about complementart therapies as nursing profession is widely using CAM in UK and USA. due to time limitation I could not share my experience of CAM in UK and in Jeddah I used Fennugreek seeds for diabetes and hyperlipidemia and it worked very well for my husband.
    It was a great event for me as it was a first event attended in Kingdom. I have extensively travelled internationally for medical and nursing conferences and presented several papers. My horizons are expanded attending this event
    I would like to know how many doctors and nurses registered and attended the event, please let me know about total participants
    thanks a lot
    farhana
