Dr. Daoshing Ni was a featured speaker at the 2018 Integrative Fertility Symposium in Vancouver, British Columbia, April 27-29. What he didn’t learn until Saturday noon during the conference was that he was being honored by the conference for being a pioneer and trailblazer in the field of integrative reproductive medicine. Conference organizer Dr. Lorne Brown presented Dr. Dao with a beautiful glass sculpture of an inukshuk, an Inuit trail marker that leaders make to assure those who follow along that they are on the right path. Congratulations, Dr. Dao!
