New Venue For AMMG’s Clinical Applications Conference Earns Huge Praise From Physicians

Ann Castro 

The JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa in Tucson, Arizona, was the new site for the November 2-5 CME-accredited conference, presented by the Age Management Medicine Group (AMMG) for physicians and healthcare professionals—26 AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credits.

NAPLES, FL (November 15, 2017) — The 23rd Clinical Applications for Age Management Medicine Conference delivered a panoramic educational experience with some of the highest-reviewed lectures in AMMG’s conference history. Physicians commenting on the conference said it was “well-designed with knowledgeable speakers, exciting, progressive, the best conference ever attended in the last 12 years.” AMMG raised the bar of the November conference with its bold venue change—from its longtime location in an entertainment-focused city to the more health-centric JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa in Tucson, Arizona. Across the board, attendees gave a resounding “worth the travel” compliment for the new venue, which embodied Age Management Medicine’s lifestyle and mission.  

Like prior AMMG conferences, the November event gave physicians an opportunity to engage on every front—surrounded with robust, peer-reviewed curriculum that filled educational gaps and targeted the hottest topics and challenges impacting 21st century medical practices. Many presentations garnered rave reviews, including . . .
Women’s Health & Hormones—general session presentations covering a broad spectrum, from sexual health to testosterone use in women and HRT in women with CAD
Introduction to Hormone Optimization—full-day preconference track educating physicians in facets of hormone therapy (men/women) that they never learned in medical school and  expanding their understanding of interventional endocrinology within Age Management Medicine
Genomics of Microbiome—general-session presentation of how the emerging field of microRNA reveals the extraordinary involvement of bacteria, fungi, and foods in regulating the human genome
Peptides for a Wellness Practice and Progressive Peptide Therapy—general-session lectures about peptides function in cell-signaling, telomere improvement, inflammation reduction, and a novel therapy for bio-regulation
Precision Medicine—full-day preconference track educating physicians in the fundamental shift of a personalized medical approach with forward-thinking protocols

“Physicians at our November event experienced an out-of-the-box medical conference, where they heard vital topics presented with a refreshing, non-stagnate approach and where they gained a deeper understanding of the clinical relevance of testosterone for women and other complex issues within Age Management Medicine,” said Greg Fillmore, AMMG Conference Chairman/Cofounder.

Attendees also were encouraged as they cheered one of their own—Dr. Anna M. Cabeca, a known champion of women’s health, regarded as a passionate clinician, speaker, and educator—as she accepted the 2017 Alan P. Mintz Award for Clinical Excellence in Age Management Medicine. 

Set in the Sonoran Desert, the site of the conference—the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa—offered attendees healthy lifestyle activities that mirror the Age Management Medicine approach: hiking, running, jogging/fitness trail, mountain biking trail, nature preserve trail, golfing, and swimming. No wonder conference goers gave the new venue a big thumbs-up.

“The conference evaluations submitted by physician attendees tell the real story. Over and over, their remarks signaled that our venue change was a smart move. They called the new venue spectacular and said it was quite conducive to learning and living what we preach to patients,” said Rick Merner, AMMG Executive Director/Cofounder.

AMMG’s 24th Clinical Applications for Age Management Conference is scheduled for April 26-29, 2018 at the Omni Hotel & Resort in Orlando, Florida. Currently, the planned agenda includes a hormone preconference track with clinical case discussions and lectures on new and innovative technology, the medical use of marijuana—CBD or derivatives for aging/age-related diseases—as well as preconference tracks on office-based aesthetics and traumatic brain injury.
