From latest research findings and eye-opening presentations to engaging, interactive panel discussions with experts to introduce and update physicians on the latest science-based clinical information and sophisticated clinical applications. After attending this in-depth, four-day conference, you’ll walk away with what you need to add this 21st century medical specialty to your existing practice. We’ll even show you how you can become certified in Age Management Medicine.
Pre-Conference Track 1
Telomere Biology Workshop: Applications for Clinical Practice
Telomeres are nucleoprotein structures found at the termini of linear eukaryotic chromosomes. They serve as a buffer against the end replication problem and protect chromosome ends from inappropriate DNA repair; thus, telomeres are essential for the maintenance of genome stability and continued cellular proliferation. Research has shown telomeres are an important part in the aging and disease process. This track will review the fundamentals of Telomere Biology, discuss considerations with lifestyle, stress, diet & exercise and the role that telomeres play in the disease process and how it can be applied to Age Management Medicine. Additionally, attendees will be offered the opportunity to participate in two key Telomere Lab Tests which will reveal not only the attendee’s individual results but will be reviewed by faculty as a cohort study with those in the track participating.
Pre-Conference Track 2
Clinical Lifestyle Modification to Achieve Optimal Health
The leading causes of mortality and healthcare costs worldwide are chronic diseases resulting from lifestyle and environmental factors. The prevention of disorders caused by lifestyle factors such as poor nutrition, lack of physical activity and chronic stress are huge issues for Age Management physicians and one of their biggest challenges is dealing with patients who can be uninterested, unmotivated or uneducated on the negative health implications that poor lifestyle choices can bring. This track will attempt to provide clinicians with tools to communicate more effectively with their patients and provide them evidence based clinical treatment options to ultimately provide better healthcare and optimal patient health.
Pre-Conference Track 3
Office Based Aesthetics for the Age Management Clinician
In response to attendee requests for information on aesthetic protocols and treatments which are office based and can be done by non-board certified Age Management Clinicians either full time or as an adjunct to their existing practice, AMMG presents this track in conjunction with the American Academy of Microneedling. The decision not to accredit this track was made so that attendees could be provided with business tools as well as the science and medical information necessary to implement these procedures. The goal is not to make this track commercial but to give speakers in this niche area the leverage to openly discuss procedures and answer questions that could be severely restricted in an accredited environment.
* Track is Non CME. In conjunction with the American Academy of Medical Microneedling
Pre-Conference Track 4
Traumatic Brain Injury; A Clinical Approach to Diagnosis and Treatment
It is evident that the traditional approaches to Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are not working. Just look at the Sunday sports page or listen to the American Heroes Network. We are losing more and more people every day to the devastating effects of depression, anger, rage and suicide. So, what is the medical community really doing, if anything? In 2004, Dr. Mark Gordon started working on the premise that trauma to the head and/or body can cause disruption of neurosteroid and hormone production via chemical pathways. Additionally, trauma creates an inflammatory environment in the body that affects the chemistry in the brain. The combination of hormonal disruption and inflammation are at the root cause of impairment in cognition and behavior. This track will take you through the medical literature to disclose the cause and effects of TBI on brain functioning. Case reviews will be presented showing laboratory testing, interpretation, treatment and outcomes. Dr. Mark Gordon is faculty for all sessions in this track.
In conjunction with the Warrior Angels Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. A portion of the proceeds from this course will be donated to the Warrior Angels Foundation as they work towards their goal of providing personalized assessment and treatment for U.S. Military Service Members and Veterans who have sustained Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) while in the line of duty.
