INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE LAUNCHES JOINT CONFERENCE TREND


ACAM "Collaboration Cures" Conference 2019


October 14-17, 2019 marked the 4th Annual Collaboration Cures event by the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) and The American Academy of Physiological Medicine & Dentistry (AAPMD). Both medical organizations united for another successful conference at the 2019 Annual Meeting where both associations ran side-by-side programs where attendees can choose lectures from either.  This year's event took place at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, TN where over 400 members of ACAM and AAPMD and supporters of the medical community nationwide attended to experience the many benefits of this educational conference. An additional 400+ came from American Academy for Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH), the third partner association for the Collaboration Cures event.

According to Dr. Ahvie Herskowitz (President of ACAM) and Dr. Howard Hindin (VP of ACAM and Executive Director for AAPMD), the mission behind this special alliance was sparked by a growing body of evidence supporting common origins of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, dementia and cancer. Now in their fourth meeting, ACAM and AAPMD uniquely demonstrated how medicine & dentistry can collaborate in both assessment & treatment of patients for better overall healthcare.  Supporters of this special event were excited about the growing momentum set by this plan- delivering the recorded "second largest collaboration event in the past 4 years... and showing positive signs of new expansion for 2020!"


Over 60 of the industry's top medical experts in health and wellness delivered educational presentations to support the community of integrative medicine.  Recognized names like Dr. Julian Thayer (world leader in heart rate variability (HRV) research), Dr. Joseph Mercola (NYT Best selling author and renowned advocate for natural medicine), Dr Pamela Smith (Anti-Aging / Functional Medicine specialist) and internationally renowned physician specializing in clinical onco-immunology Dr. Jesse Stoff. "I applaud ACAM for their vision and leadership in uniting other medical associations to assemble the community of healers to share their findings and resources", states Dr. Stoff. "This is telling of the 'coming together' movement of the INTEGRATIVE philosophy of treating disease today- in that it takes more than a village but the entire community (of medicine) and a commitment to healing the whole patient, not just the isolated issue".

The group is represented in a number of ways in both the medical and dental fields. Medical includes MDs and NDs, as well as chiropractors, physical therapists, airway health specialists and anyone looking at whole human health.  Top long term ACAM supporters and a growing list of new partnerships expressed great energy about their partnership with ACAM). The Collaboration Cures afilliates and exhibitors included an estimated 25-30 partners for ACAM and about the same for AAPMD were represented on the Learning Floor. "There are really so many people caring and sharing in this powerful movement!"

Collaboration Cures upholds a special agenda of advanced learning and expanding the involvement of key players to achieve overall health. In years to come, they aim to continue implementing this collaborative concept into daily practice, sharing the most cutting-edge techniques in integrative healthcare and exploring new partnership opportunities.  "With the current health problems... collaboration is absolutely necessary for optimal health solutions because there is no one practitioner that has all the keys to answer the problem" -  Howard Hindin, DDS (Pres. AAPMD/ VP of ACAM)
