Young Forever: The Emerging Science of Longevity

Getting older is inevitable but aging is optional. Emerging longevity science holds the potential to avoid the diseases of aging – diabetes, heart disease, cancer and dementia, to extend both health span and lifespan. The hallmarks of aging underlie all age related diseases. Through the lens of the hallmarks of aging, network, system and functional medicine, a new diagnostic and clinical model provides a roadmap to address the root causes of aging and activate longevity pathways.

10:00 AM - 10:30 AM:

Ask the Expert: Aging


Integrative Healthcare Symposium to honor Peter D’Adamo, ND, with the 2023 Leadership Award. Each year, the Symposium honors an integrative healthcare professional whose forward-thinking contributions have advanced their field of practice and their community.

This year’s honoree will also play an active role in the three-day conference, presenting the Plenary: To Whisper Sweet Nothings: My Journey from Sugars to Glycomics. Thursday, February 23 | 4:00 PM-5:00 PM


Personalized Nutrition: An Integrative Practitioner’s Super Power

Saturday, February 25 | 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Within this year, billions will be spent on what’s marketed as “personalized” or “precision” nutrition and healthcare. These programs and products are designed to circumvent the practitioner, going direct to consumer with the allure that a quiz, computer, and even access to a coach can get better outcomes without needing the practitioner.

In this session, you will learn how to be better positioned to effectively compete against all the direct-to-consumer offerings that don’t deliver the individual caliber of personalized assessment, recommendations and support patients need for lasting better health outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

1. Summarize how to position your practice to compete against direct-to-consumer “personalized” medicine offerings

2. Review how one practitioner scales their practice with personalization

3. Identify how to vet the needs of your practice to optimize resources for optimal results
