The 26th Annual Spring Congress will take place from April 13-14, with pre-conference symposia on April 12th. The Congress will focus on brain diseases and disorders, the most current and cutting-edge topics in the landscape of modern medicine, through educational sessions, interactive lectures, and an Exhibit Hall hosting 250 exhibitors with products ranging from aesthetic devices and equipment to high-tech medical products. The Exhibit Hall's vendors include all facets of Integrative Medicine, including nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals, compounding labs and testing, companies that specialize in CBD services, and high-grade supplements. In addition, this event hosts advanced educational opportunities through the newly redesigned Fellowship in Anti-Aging, Metabolic and Functional Medicine (FAAMFM) modules. Oral and Written exams will also be conducted for healthcare professionals pursuing their Anti-Aging board and diplomate certifications.
The Congress will feature 40 lectures and academic speakers, 8 learning tracks, and several sponsored workshops and product presentations. This year’s keynotes include renowned doctors and lecturers from across the globe, all of whom will be speaking about the most recently developed practices and protocols in modern integrative medicine.
Keynote speakers include Daniel Amen, MD, Rudolph Tanzi, PhD, Raun K. Kaufman, and Brennan Spiegel, MD, MSHS. Renowned double-board certified psychiatrist, educator, international lecturer, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Amen is widely regarded as one of the world’s foremost experts on the application of brain imaging science to clinical practice; his nationwide clinics have the world’s largest database of functional brain scans relating to human behavior, totaling 73,000 scans on patients from 90 countries. Dr. Rudolph Tanzi serves as the Vice-Chair of Neurology and Director of the Genetics and Aging Research at Massachusetts General Hospital, and the Joseph P. and Rose F. Kennedy Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School. Co-discoverer of three of the first Alzheimer’s disease genes, Dr. Tanzi has identified several other genes through his direction of the Alzheimer’s Genome Project—receiving the highest awards in his field, including TIME’s 100 Most Influential People in the World. Raun Kaufman is the author of the book, Autism Breakthrough: The Groundbreaking Method That Has Helped Families All Over the World. As a young boy, Kaufman was diagnosed with severe autism. His parents developed the Son-Rise Program, which ultimately enabled Kaufman to recover from his autism with no residual traces. Kaufman currently serves as Director of Global Education for the Autism Treatment Center of America and holds a degree in Biomedical Ethics from Brown University. Dr. Brennan Spiegel is the Director of Health Services Research for Cedars-Sinai Health System and Professor of Medicine and Public Health at UCLA, where he teaches digital health science, health analytics, and health economics. Dr. Spiegel directs the Cedars-Sinai Center for Outcomes Research and Education (CS-CORE), a multidisciplinary team that investigates the impacts of digital health technologies on patient care.
Further topics to be addressed are natural healing therapies, new integrative cancer treatments, cannabis and the brain, hormone therapies, the pain/brain connection, and stem cell therapy. In addition to keynote lectures and afternoon sessions, there will be three specialty pre-conference workshops, designed to provide additional clinical education: “Peptide Therapy,” “Cannabis in Medicine,” and “Practice Enhancement Training.”
The Spring Congress is the optimal platform for healthcare practitioners to establish new professional contacts, receive comprehensive and thorough education, and network with other medical professionals from an array of disciplines and fields. Attendees will emerge armed with increased education, insight, and an arsenal of necessary tools to advance and progress in the ever-changing field of healthcare. We believe that peer-to-peer connections, in conjunction with the latest clinical education, can spur social change—ultimately transforming care and enhancing patient outcomes. Just as spring represents rebirth and rejuvenation, A4M/MMI’s Spring Congress will focus on the concept of ‘brain awakening:’ renewing your understanding of the complex world of the mind and finding collaborative solutions together. As Leonardo da Vinci aptly stated: “Learning never exhausts the mind.”
