IVC Academy & Symposium


IVC Academy: Learn how to safely and effectively administer IV Vitamin C in your practice.

October 3-5, 2019 | Riordan Clinic campus | Wichita, KS | $395 early-bird price | Limited to 60 participants

In 1990, Dr. Hugh Riordan announced the inception of RECNAC – Research Encompassing Novel Approaches to Cancer – with the intent of discovering underlying causes of cancer and finding ways to treat cancer in a non-toxic fashion.

Now, 29 years later, The Riordan IVC Protocol for Cancer is well known in the integrative and orthomolecular medicine community and is commonly used as an effective adjunct to conventional oncologic therapy. Although the access to trained physicians and clinics has grown, there is still an overwhelming number of providers who are looking for guidance on using IVC in their practice.

1. What is the best measure of IVC effectiveness?
2. Should other nutrients be added to the IVC solution?
3. Could alternative rates of infusion improve outcome?
4. What types of cancers respond best to IVC therapy?

If any of these questions resonate with you, the IVC Academy is the perfect opportunity to step away from your daily schedule and focus on learning how to implement or strengthen the use of IVC in your practice. Learn from the experts who helped research, develop, teach, and use the IVC Protocol every day.

This event is limited to 60 participants. Regular price: $595

  • Hotels and Travel

    We are looking forward to having you join us in Wichita, Kansas for the 2019 IVC Academy. Wichita is a beautiful community full of entertainment, great dining, family activities, shopping, and more. You can find out more about all of these at VisitWichita.com.

    Wichitans are quite proud of our flag! You’ll see it displayed all around our community and beautiful murals have been painted on many downtown buildings integrating the basic components of the iconic design. The imagery for the 2019 IVC Academy actually features the bold contrast of shapes and colors! There are dedicated Instagram pages where people take pics of the flag all over the world and tag #WichitaFlag and #ILoveWichita. We’ll have flags on hand for you to take home and remember your time in our vibrant city!



    The IVC Academy will be held on the Riordan Clinic campus in Wichita, Kansas.

    Traveling to Wichita: 

    For those flying, the Eisenhower Airport (ICT) will be your destination. With a new terminal having been built and opened in 2015 it is now easier than ever to travel with many direct flights being offered from around the country. Alaska Airlines, Allegiant Air, American Airlines/American Eagle, Delta Air Lines/Delta Connection, Frontier, Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines/United Express all have flights available to/from ICT.

    Driving Directions


    Renting a car is the best way to get the most out of your visit. Wichita is easy to navigate and although we have a larger population of about 400k the city is still designed well for commuter and residential traffic. If you are not wanting to rent a car, Wichita is serviced by both Uber and Lyft. We recommend these over local taxi companies. Both have designated pick up areas at the Eisenhower Airport. Please be aware that many hotels do not offer free airport shuttles so please check with them in advance if that is an amenity you require. They also do not provide shuttles to local businesses so it will be your responsibility to find transportation to/from the clinic each day.


    There is not a designated hotel for the IVC Academy. However, below you will find a list of hotels that we regularly work with, have personally toured and can recommend for a comfortable stay.

    • Residence Inn by Marriott | $109/night | 8.5 miles (11 minutes) from the clinic | Book online
    • Drury Plaza Broadview | $119/night | 7.1 miles (12 minutes) from the clinic | Book online (code: 329315)
    • Hotel at Old Town | from $99/night | 7.1 miles (12 minutes) from the clinic | Book online
    • Candlewood Suites | $73/night | 5 miles (7 minutes) from the clinic | Book online (code: ILGLJ)


    Restaurants and Grocers

    Wichita is home to a growing number of restaurants and grocers who offer a wide variety of nutritionally based options. Gluten-free, vegan, paleo, keto, vegetarian, etc, diets can all be well accommodated while you are visiting. Lunch is served on Friday and Saturday at the clinic. Breakfast and dinners are on your own. View the list.



  • What Past Attendees Are Saying

    “Now I see that it was worth traveling 24 hours to come to this conference because what I hear here is telling me that I am thinking in the right direction. That you have to combine different modalities and Intravenous Vitamin C is the modality that is not developed enough in my part of the world. So I would like to be the agent of change in that respect.”    Jana Wahl, MD, MSc, MBA | Health Coach | Kamnik, Slovenia

    “I’m very fortunate to be… attending the Riordan Clinic conference. How Vitamin C is so beneficial to improve the health of our patients. From inflammation, from scurvy; whether it is by infection, or whether it is by cancer, whether it is by toxic overload. This is an excellent meeting and I encourage all physicians, and all care providers to attend this one.”  Paul Kotturan, MD | Deerfield Beach, Florida

    “It is really great to be able to listen to guys that have done this for years and be able to learn from their experiences. … If you’re interested in IV therapy, or just want to learn more about it for your patients, a great place to network and be with other people that are there.” James Warren, DC, APC | Tulsa, Oklahoma
