In summer 2012, National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) joined together with Women in Balance to form the new Women In Balance Institute. Since its inception, WIB has pointed women in the direction of optimal wellness through education and connections to quality health care providers with the Health Care Provider Locator.  The new Women in Balance Institute (WIBI), with the connection to NCNM will continue to enrich these programs, and be a valuable resource for the latest information in women’s health.  

In spring 2013, the new WIBI will be holding its inaugural women’s health symposium, March 15–17, 2013. This first annual WIBI conference has its roots in how hormones affect health and wellbeing.
