Description

At one of our most widely attended events, listen to experts analyze the medical evidence surrounding hormone therapies, while learning from actively practicing instructors & specialty lecturers. Taking place in San Diego, attendees will have the chance to explore the many museums, beaches, and parks that make the city one of the most popular destinations in the country. 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 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 San Diego.
