29th Annual World Congress | December 9-12

Venetian - Palazzo Resort, Las Vegas, NV

With the numerous challenges and changes that have occurred within the last two years, the healthcare field is entering a new chapter with new opportunities to build a more resilient medical system that centers on science-based, whole-person care. Themed "The Next Chapter: Unmasking the Hidden Epidemic," this year's 29th Annual A4M World Congress will address many of the neglected crises within our medical system that have left patients, healthcare professionals, and our shared communities overall vulnerable. From the growing brain health crisis that permeates all aspects of health, underserved patient populations, environmental health, and more—this year's event will deliver forward-thinking insights to help clinicians confidently lead this new chapter in healthcare with the most valuable strategies, therapeutics, and resources available.
