On Thursday, 12 May, and Friday, 13 May, Grégoire was invited as a guest speaker during the osteopathy conference that took place at the University of Novgorod, in Russia.
This University closely cooperates with the school for osteopathy in Saint-Petersburg. The titel of Grégoires presentation was:"Osteopathie, quo vadis?" (What's the future of osteopathy). During his presentation, Grégoire emphasized that the future of osteopathy lies in the further academisation of the profession in which scientific research is crucial. Esoteric things such as laying on of hands, are definitely not a part of osteopathy. Grégoires vision could count on much support.
