The Cleveland Clinic
UC Davis Integrative Medicine Program
10th Annual Dr. Roizen’s Preventive Care and Integrative Medicine Conference
December 7-9, 2012
Las Vegas Mirage Hotel
As use of preventive and integrative medical approaches increases, so does practitioners’ need to know the current risk-benefit data, potential applications, and how to integrate these therapies into clinical practice. Because many of the treatments are still outside mainstream medicine, not all practitioners are familiar with the evidence base for them and may be uncomfortable discussing them with patients or prescribing them.
Conference presenters will focus on the brain and its many disorders, discussing up-to-date scientific information on physiology and the use of wellness treatments in the prevention and treatment of brain disorders. The objective of this conference is to provide current, scientific evidence on a variety of topics such as preventing memory loss, treating adult ADHD, intrinsic and extrinsic incentives to behavior change, dietary influences on Alzheimer’s risk, vitamin D3 deficiency and the brain, holistic therapy for the brain, wellness for the caregiver, effect of wine, nuts, sex, and chocolate on the brain, and traditional and integrative approaches to insomnia – all topics suggested by practitioners who attended last year’s meeting.
The format will focus on evidence-based discussions, helping health care practitioners understand the benefits and risks of these treatments and how to integrate them into a patient-specific management plan, which will ultimately translate into improved patient outcomes.
The conference is designed for medical professionals with an interest in the use of preventive and integrative medical approaches.
