The Fellowship in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine (FAARM) Module 1C: Advanced Metabolic Endocrinology was held last weekend. The workshop featured speakers Gary Huber, DO; Director of the Fellowship Pam W. Smith, MD, MPH; Elizabeth Stuller, MD; and David Zava, PhD.

Lectures focused on breast health, estrogen metabolism and risk of developing breast cancer. A big focus of discussion was on women’s health issues such as advanced therapies in dysmenorrhea, vulvodynia, cervical dysplasia, endometriosis, fibrocystic breast disease, dysfunctional uterine bleeding and amenorrhea. Also discussed was how memory and hormones affect heart health.

Main objectives of the module included how stress affects the body, how to treat adrenal dysfunction, hormone changes caused by aging, as well as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA; including the functions, excess, risks and benefits of these in the body.

In relation to this topic, The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) will host a symposium on gut/brain and autoimmune disorders August 16-17 in Los Angeles.
