Agenda April 2020

Miami, Florida | April 23 - 26

We’re in the process of finalizing the AMMG 28th Clinical Applications for Age Management Medicine Conference agenda. This April we are adding an expanded Practice Management Workshop, Peptides Certification, Exosomes Certification plus 2 pre-conference tracks & 3 days of highly instructive topics. Here’s a sample of what were planning to include.
Wednesday April 22 — Pre-Conference Workshop

Practice Management Workshop: Launching and Growing a Successful Age Management Practice

Many attendees of the AMMG conferences are attracted to the field of Age Management Medicine, but do not feel qualified, or empowered with the necessary tools, to successfully transition from the well-established structure of disease-based medicine or from the traditional insurance-based reimbursement system into a system which relies to a significant degree upon direct pay. This workshop is for those physicians and management staff. Attendees will be guided through the process of evaluating their professional goals, and then be helped to create a successful strategy to achieve those goals. Our goal is for the attendee to be equipped with the basic tools for making the decision whether to consider moving into an Age Management Medicine practice, and if so, to create a successful transition into this exciting field.
