BOCA RATON, Fla., May 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine held the world's largest East Coast Anti-Aging Conference May 19-21, 2015 at the Westin Diplomat Hotel and Convention Center in Hollywood Beach, FL. To celebrate the American Academy of Anti-Aging's (A4M) 25th year since coming to fruition, the 28,000 physician and associated medical professional membership group convened to discuss the hottest topics in the medical arena: anti-aging science and US healthcare reform.
Over 80 globally known presenters, hundreds of vendors and thousands of physicians, scientists, and related healthcare leaders were in attendance to learn the latest medical breakthroughs, including technologies ranging from genetic engineering, nanotechnologies and nontoxic therapies to orally available human growth hormone analogs, computer-based artificial intelligence (AI) medical diagnostics, and an incredible volume of groundbreaking, landmark research.
A4M President and Founder Dr. Ronald Klatz, M.D., D.O., stated in his opening remarks that the anti-aging lifespan dividend now stands at almost 25 years between those Americans fortunate enough to receive state-of-the-art antiaging technologies versus those who sadly endure their current healthcare plans, leading them to suffer under the outdated disease-based healthcare. Evidence of this lifespan variance has been recently reported in the UK, showing that the top economic 1% of the population enjoys a 20 year longer healthy lifespan than the bottom 1%.
The US population finds itself in a similar environment. However, with new investment into anti-aging/longevity sciences, there could soon be a visible shift. In the past two years alone, $3 billion were thrust into research and development at major pharmaceutical and bioscience companies seeking to join the anti-aging medicine movement along with corporate giants Google, Johnson & Johnson, IBM's Watson, GlaxoSmithKline, Novo Nordisk, and many others.
Dr. Klatz stated, "It is my belief that maximum lifespan of 122 years and 164 days attained by Jeanne Louise Calment of France is soon to be broken." He continued, "baby boomers adopting the anti-aging medicine lifestyle and preventative care approach will easily exceed 120 years; more than a few here in attendance will achieve quality, healthy lifespans of 150 years given the over 700 new drugs and technologies now in the biomedical pipeline."
The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, the A4M, is headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida. The A4M provides continuing education to physicians, as well as specialized training programs, and a board certification. More information can be found at www.WorldHealth.net.
