Doctors and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine meet once a year for this conference to present research into solutions for aging. The following previews the problem and solution that this conference will explore through events, speeches, and merchant exhibits. Below are the highlights, visit for registration information.

The Aging Problem

Aging is a global dilemma. The World Health Organization projects that over the next 20 to 30 years, elderly populations in developed countries will increase by 30 to 140%, and in developing countries this bracket will grow by 200 to 400%. WHO further states that there is neither worldwide public policy nor sufficient resource allocation to provide for the medical, social, and economic needs of a rapidly expanding group of older citizens.


The Anti-Aging Medicine Solution

Anti-aging medicine, an extension of preventive health care, is based on the early detection, prevention, and reversal of aging-related diseases. Progressive physicians and health care professionals are currently using the growing body of research to safely and successfully treat thousands of patients.
