Achieving Longevity Pre-Conference Workshop

Course Description

This interactive workshop is designed for a range of skillsets and knowledge levels in hormone therapies, including both the introductory beginner and the more advanced clinician. Dr. Thierry Hertoghe—President of the International Hormone Society, and a world-renowned authority regarding longevity and Anti-Aging Medicine—will focus on teaching both the fundamental basics and more advanced topics, with specific ways to implement hormonal therapies in the clinical setting. Dr. Hertoghe will review essential hormone therapy protocols to correct nutritional and hormonal imbalances, and begin to address the root causes of diseases that can result in both physical and psychological disorders. Pre-conference sessions will not only include an interactive dialogue, but also Q&A sessions, case studies of hormone test results, and podium patient consultations: specifically, the most current clinical updates in the applications of testosterone treatment, and newly released guidelines for adjustments.
