Chicago, IL, May 22, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The Orlando Congress drew thousands of well-credentialed doctors and medical professionals from across the nation and 105 countries worldwide. The vast majority of attendees were Anti-Aging practitioners seeking Fellowship Training and Board Certification, and healthcare professionals dedicated to bringing back to their patients, all that the latest science, research and clinical applications have to offer.
One attendee, Dr. Peggy Watson, said, “The A4M Fellowship in Anti-Aging Medicine has been an extremely positive experience in both my professional and personal life. It was worth the "price of admission" just to get my health and the health of my family on track. Additionally, it has given me an entirely new perspective on treating patients. I find that previously difficult clinical situations are now welcomed challenges with my new skills. My interest in medicine has been renewed and I have never in my professional career wanted to study so much. Now, with the new Masters degree that can be earned, this emerging field of medicine can no longer be described as alternative or complementary. University backing of the science behind the medicine has just instantaneously validated in the public eye all that we have learned.”
The conference speakers represented a distinguished roster of Anti-Aging pioneers, thought leaders, researchers and experts across a wide variety disciplines.
Dr. Mercola, a speaker at the conference and Founder of Mercola.com, commented, “I have had the opportunity to attend and present at several of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Conferences, and have been very impressed with the quality of every event. The program is loaded with some of the brightest and most innovative clinicians in medicine.”
Highlights of the conference included the following presentations, fellowships and workshops:
· Integrative Cancer Therapy, Presented by Mark Rosenberg, MD
· The Fellowship in Anti-Aging Medicine: Co-chaired by Pamela Smith, MD, MPH
· The Fellowship in Aesthetic Medicine: Co-chaired by Sharon McQuillan, MD
· Clinical Applications of Interventional Endocrinology: Presented by Mark L. Gordon, MD
· IV Nutrition Therapy: Presented by Mitchell J. Ghen, DO, PhD
· Energy Medicine: Co-Chaired by James L. Oschman, PhD
· Putting It All Together: Hormone Restoration, Presented by Sangeeta Pati, MD
Just announced at the Conference was the Integrative Cancer Therapy Fellowship, the first and only existing U.S. Fellowship in Integrative Cancer Therapy. The Fellowship will be taught by Mark Rosenberg, MD. And for the first time, A4M offered the Fellowship in Preventative Medicine, Nutrition and Sports Medicine, led by Dr. Jim Bell.
For attendees, the exhibition hall was another source of learning and discovery. Conference-goers seeking cutting-edge products and services to enhance their practices found high caliber exhibitors offering an unprecedented number of state-of-the-art solutions for demonstration and sale.
Exhibitors were equally pleased with the conference. “The A4M conference is truly a paradigm shift in the way medical education is presented” said, Dr. Steve Helschien of Cardio Crusaders, LLC. “Upscale facilities, forward thinking presentations, and the best organized event I have seen in thirty years. As a doctor and a business entrepreneur I greatly appreciated both the educational presentations and the sales venue.”
William Faloon, A Board Member of Life Extension Foundation, another exhibitor added, “Life Extension was extremely pleased with the success of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine’s conference held this past April in Orlando, Florida. This was by far, one of the most success medical conferences at which we have exhibited as it offered our company exposure to many doctors who are blazing the path in anti-aging, science-based medicine. We look forward to continuing our ongoing partnership with such a great organization.”
The success of this year's congress is a credit to this progressive medical movement's unwavering pursuit of advanced best practices and its embrace of cutting edge medical research and science.
In addition, economic conditions and political trends have ushered in a new perspective among the greater medical community. More and more healthcare providers are embracing the advanced preventative and regenerative modalities embodied in Anti-Aging Medicine.
In the face of a world economic crisis in which the medical community is feeling the pinch, those who practice anti-aging modalities are thriving. This fact has not gone unnoticed by doctors across the country that have seen their net income decrease in recent years, while Anti-Aging doctors have enjoyed an increase in their salaries, on average of $400,000 per year.
With intense pressure for the US Federal government to “reform” healthcare, preventative medicine is clearly a focus for those aiming to reduce the overall cost of care. Moving toward a system that prevents illness and disease by empowering patients and their doctors to take a more proactive role in their wellness not only saves and extends lives, but is a more economical approach as well. And by staying at the forefront of emerging regenerative and biomedical technologies, healthcare providers can arm themselves with the knowledge, skills and tools needed to be state-of-the-art healers and contribute to a healthier population.
With that in mind, and building on its success, A4M will introduce a new conference format featuring clinical applications for in-office procedures. Scheduled for September 9-12 in San Jose California, the conference will provide attendees with the latest modalities and practices they can put to immediate use, benefiting both their patients and their careers.
