Dr. Roizen's Preventive and Integrative Medicine Conference
During the past decade, use of preventive and integrative medicines has greatly expanded along with the types of therapies, patient populations, and conditions treated. As these therapies become more integrated into medicine, the sheer volume of different types of therapy and their clinical profiles combine to create gaps among practitioners and patients regarding their clinical efficacy and optimal use in practice.
This conference will focus on discussing the most recent data, analyzing its impact, and assessing its best use in clinical practice. Key topics to be discussed include the role of nutrition in the inflammatory process, gut microbes, plant-based diets, and use of shared medical appointments.
The format will focus on evidence-based discussions by experts in preventive and integrative medicine. The overarching goal is to provide participants with the knowledge to understand the benefits and risks of these treatment options and how to integrate them into patient-specific management plans, which will ultimately translate into improved patient outcomes.
