)-- The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) to hold largest Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Symposium in Phoenix, AZ September 10-13, 2014
The BHRT Symposium, an exclusive 3 ½ day seminar, will present the basic science, theory and extensive practical applications of male and female hormone replacement as well as the latest advances, treatment programs, and case studies designed to support the frontline physician.
This extensive and interactive event allows attendees to meet face-to-face with the industry’s leading hormone treatment specialists varying from MDs, to OB/GYNs, to pharmacists.
Featured speakers include Eric Braverman, MD; John Grasela, RPh; Kris Hart, MN, FNP, RN-C; Thierry Hertoghe, MD, President of the International Hormone Society; Jennifer Landa, MD, OB/GYN, FAARFM, Director of A4M’s Sexual Health Certification; Ron Rothenberg, MD; Pamela W. Smith, MD, MS, MPH, Director of the Fellowship in Anti-Aging, Regenerative and Functional Medicine; and Jonathan V. Wright, MD.
With controversial studies released within the past year plaguing the reputation of Testosterone therapy, Drs. Jennifer Landa and Pam Smith will be sharing timely, relevant information on the proven benefits of hormone replacement therapy, and the powerful, positive effects it can have on health issues caused by hormone depletion and deficiencies.
Additionally, attendees will gain first-hand experience in the diagnosis of hormone deficiencies when Dr. Thierry Hertoghe conducts a live demonstration based on participant lab results. Other topics covered include clinical signs of hypothyroidism, hormone replacement for women, essential laboratory tests, cancer awareness and hormones, bio-identical hormones and the cardiovascular system, andropause, hormones and the brain, preventing Alzheimer’s, migraine headache treatment, and hormone therapies for rheumatoid disorders.
Past attendees to the Symposium have found this event to be educational, dynamic and invaluable in helping them develop a more integrative approach to treating their patients. Family Practitioner, Dr. Jane Cormack says, “The case studies presented at the Symposium gave me a thorough understanding, from basic, early-sign patient symptoms to the advancements and protocols needed to treat the most complex patient cases. The live diagnosis performed by Dr. Hertoghe was an essential part of the Symposium, proving just how much of an impact hormone deficiency can have on a patient, and how necessary BHRT is to eliminate symptoms and prevent more chronic health issues. I would recommend this Symposium to any practitioner looking to integrate BHRT into an existing practice, anyone who wants to be equipped to answer patient questions, or anyone who wants to improve the overall well-being of their patients.”
In addition to the BHRT Symposium, hundreds of physicians will travel to Phoenix for Board Certification exams as well as to complete the required modules for the Fellowship in Anti-Aging, Regenerative and Functional Medicine. Modules offered at this event will include:
· Module I: A Metabolic, Anti-Aging and Functional Approach to Endocrinology
· Module II: Treatment of Hypertension, Diabetes, Coronary Artery Disease, Metabolic Syndrome
· Module VI: Herbology and Functional Regenerative Matrix
· Module XXV(B): Addiction
This event will offer unparalleled education to practitioners who share the common goal of improving patient care, transforming their practices, and staying on the cutting-edge of medicine.
