A4M kicked off a bustling education season this September by hosting two industry-leading events featuring eight diverse programs, over 150 sessions, and nearly 100 highly-acclaimed expert speakers. Gathering hundreds of healthcare professionals from across the country, both conferences were remarkably successful and showcased the latest in integrative health, anti-aging, and longevity.
Between September 8-10, pediatric specialists, functional medicine experts, cardiologists, and anti-aging medicine practitioners came together in the stunning coastal town of Rancho Palos Verdes, CA – where they spent the weekend immersed in the latest education among fellow trailblazing clinicians and breathtaking scenery.
The upcoming Endocrine Balance and Bio-Identical Hormone Restoration Therapy Symposium is the premier event for physicians, researchers, and educators to come together to improve individual hormonal care and further the endocrinology practice. This three-day event provides a unique opportunity to network with experts from across the industry, learn about the latest advances in hormone health, and gain evidence-based clinical protocols to help navigate the increasingly complex landscape of patients’ endocrine systems. Taking place at the Boston Park Plaza in Boston, MA, between September 16-18, 2022, the Symposium will host a panel of critically-acclaimed speakers and educators who will share their expertise on various timely topics.
While menopause is predominately considered to impact the reproductive system with hormonal fluctuations causing hot flashes, night sweats, and other undesirable symptoms, it is a whole-body transition that involves many different systems. As a result, many women may not be aware that their symptoms are tied to endocrine imbalances, leaving them overlooked and untreated.
“This link of the so-called sex hormones to all body systems is what is behind the surprising menopause symptoms in organs and structures that are not recognized as being highly regulated by the ovarian hormones,” A4M faculty member Felice Gersh, MD, told Well+Good in a recent interview.
A frequent and popular A4M speaker, Dr. Gersh is a board-certified OB/GYN, founder of the Integrative Medical Group of Irvine, and the author of Menopause: 50 Things You Need to Know. During her interview with Well+Good contributor Isadora Baum, Dr. Gersh outlined five surprising symptoms of menopause that are not commonly associated with the condition yet are essential to recognize and take into clinical consideration.
