Description

In this exclusive seminar, listen to experts analyze the medical evidence surrounding hormone therapies, while learning from instructors actively practicing this specialty. Taking place in the new first-time location of Houston, attendees will have the chance to explore the diverse metropolitan area: home to many cultural institutions and exhibits in the Museum District, and an active visual & performing arts scene in the Theater District. At the conference, sessions will allow participants to gain the information needed to safely and effectively merge hormone therapies into practice. While the traditional medical view of aging focuses on its inevitable complications and steady decline in quality of life, this therapy functions as a means of relieving—and even preventing—many of these symptoms. Lectures will specifically focus on allowing participants to integrate and implement hormone protocols into practice upon return to the office Monday morning, while enjoying the sites and attractions of Houston.
