Meet Our Team


Prof. Dr. Wang Weixiang - Congress President

The Dutch TCM Congress (DTCMC) aims for full-on medical integration, by supporting TCM practitioners in deepening their understanding of classical literature and by broadening their knowledge in traditional and modern medicine. During my 33 years as a TCM practitioner, I have delighted in witnessing first hand these changes and developments, and I am especially proud to play a part in the Dutch TCM education, practice and association ever since I moved to The Netherlands 20 years ago.


Dôpey Calor - Congress Director 

It is truly an honour and a blessing to be part of another DTCMC Congress.

Working on such a large international congress can be very demanding and sometimes even daunting, but this only makes it more gratifying in the end. What makes DTCMC truly unique is how it assembles the global international community of traditional medicine. This is exactly what we must strive for - a global, accessible and inclusive integrative medicine for all mankind.


Angie Calor-Man - Congress Secretary 

I am proud to be part of such a talented, fun & motivated team.

Working with the speakers, the Zhong office, our DTCMC team and the volunteers has been a great experience. I am very grateful to have this opportunity to meet new people, share ideas and learn new skills. It’s gratifying to know my work is contributing to the mission of the congress, which I believe has and will continue to promote, inform, educate & advocate to unite and integrate the TCM profession.


Mieke Maertens - Academic Advisor

During my 47 years of work experience in Africa, Asia and Europe, both in medical centres and universities (where I was part of scientific research teams) as well as in my private TCM practice, the importance of up-to-date information has always been crucial for the quality of my work. Merging new TCM knowledge, science and passionate speakers from all over the world in our DTCMC congress, can have a big impact in the daily practice of TCM practitioners. This is why I am a member of the DTCMC team!


Ronald de Wee - Strategic Executive

This year we organise another TCM congress and I feel that contributing to such a great event is a wonderful opportunity. Communicating through a congress and meeting special speakers offers our colleagues and other participants (who have a warm regard towards TCM) the possibility of enhancing a skillful trade. This skill, together with openness to diversity and our human approach, are ingredients our society very much needs in these special times, and which we, as TCM practitioners, can offer our fellow humans in order to make their lives healthier and more joyful. It makes me proud and determined.


Maritza Seeto - Communications Coordinator

I am thrilled to be part of the DTCMC team this year, and to be actively involved in organising this event. The congress presents an extraordinary opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals from around the world, broaden our horizons, and learn from esteemed experts in the field. The gathering of professionals in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) facilitates the exchange of valuable knowledge, enhancing our skills and ultimately elevating the practice of TCM in our communities. I am excited to contribute to the success of this exceptional event and promote the significance of TCM on a global scale.
