The Age Management Medicine Group (AMMG) has announced the academic agenda for the 25th Clinical Applications for Age Management Medicine Conference in Tucson, Arizona.

The conference, taking place from November 1st to 4th, 2018, will once again be held at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa, where last November’s conference was a smashing success.

While continuing with its four concurrent pre-conference tracks on Thursday, this year’s agenda has some new educational features, including featured topic blocks on Friday and Saturday, and a focus on Clinical Case Reviews and Neglected But Effective Therapies on Sunday.

Thursday’s four pre-conference tracks have some fresh topic areas as well. Track #1 will be all about Peptides and Peptide Therapies. With antibiotic properties, impact on hormonal change, and properties affecting conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular health, memory and brain health and sexual function, their use has experienced exponential growth over the past few years. A quick look here will give you an idea of what you can expect.

Track #2 is designed to present an array of new and innovative clinical interventions for the Age Management Medicine clinician. These interventions are designed so that the attendee can take them back to their practice and begin to implement them immediately. Take a look at some of the groundbreaking offerings here.

Track #3 is again the popular non-CME track on Office-Based Aesthetics, and it will once more feature the latest clinical innovations and hands-on demonstrations. Many new areas will be covered, and you can learn more about them here.

Thursday’s fourth track will once more be Dr. Mark Gordon’s groundbreaking and comprehensive course on Traumatic Brain Injury – A Clinical Approach to Diagnosis and Treatment. Presented as usual in conjunction with the Warrior Angels Foundation, with part of the proceeds going toward this lifesaving 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, 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.

The first featured topic for Friday is Prostate Cancer, with four fascinating lectures on the latest diagnostic and treatment techniques. That is followed by four lectures on the most up-to-date Breast Cancer information, including Featured Speaker Jonathan Wright, M.D., founder of the Tahoma Clinic, discussing Cobalt & Iodine and their effects on Estrogen Metabolism. More details on all of Friday’s program may be found here.

On Saturday, the day begins with three top-notch presentations on Precision Medicine. Featured Speaker Michael Snyder, M.D., Chair of the Department of Genetics at Stanford University School of Medicine, speaking about Genomics, IPOP and the Predictive Model of Health. Precision Medicine thought leaders Florence Comite, M.D. and James Watson, M.D. will follow. You can see more detailed information here.

Then on Saturday comes an extensive series of lectures on the Microbiome, Inflammation, and Advanced Endocrinology for Age Management Medicine. This block of lectures in discussed in a separate article in this issue of the E-Journal, found here. More detail on the individual lectures may be found here.

Finally, on Sunday the conference takes a different approach. Two consecutive sessions will offer attendees the opportunity to have their actual clinical cases discussed by a panel of expert physicians. The first panel will feature Michale Barber, M.D., Paul Thompson, M.D., and Neal Rouzier, M.D. The second panel will feature Florence Comite, M.D., John K. Crisler, D.O., George Shapiro, M.D., and Kathy Maupin, M.D. Attendees should submit their cases for consideration by following the link on the agenda page, here.

Following those case reviews, Jonathan Wright, M.D. will return for two lively sessions on Neglected But Effective Therapies, gathered during his decades of extensive research. Session 1 will focus on General Issues, and Session 2 will focus on Women’s Health Issues. Attendees should definitely stick around to benefit from Dr. Wright’s wealth of accumulated knowledge.
