    Defining experiences are what catapult us from our current course in life to a new one, and they provide the momentum to continue along this new course long-term. Understanding the relationships between personal experiences to initiating significant life changes, and applying this knowledge in a clinical setting with patients can improve the likelihood of their achieving and sustaining healthful lifestyles.

    Personal experiences, as an economic offering, are also largely untapped in the medical profession. While widely understood in many industries this topic is relatively new territory to the medical profession, but has particular relevance to the specialty of age management medicine. This presentation gives the clinician an overview of the subject of ‘designed patient experiences’, including principles for practical application to the clinical and business sides of medicine.

    Webinar Objectives:

    • Explain how behavior is influenced by life experiences
    • Understand the clinical relevance of patient experiences to the work of facilitating lifestyle changes
    • Understand what types of experiences are required in order for patients to initiate and sustain lifestyle changes
    • Understand the clinician’s role as ‘change agent’

    The internet is loaded with conflicting information on supplements. We all know of reputable sources that promote health-improving nutraceuticals; yet, articles are occasionally published that claim dangers in multivitamin supplementation. How should we advise our patients? The truth is that both sides of the argument are correct. Supplementation is effective, but only when evaluated and used correctly. We need to not only know the simple concepts (such as "polyphenols are good"), but we also need to understand questions that reveal the accurate data: Which supplements result in the best absorption rates? Which ones have successful trials proving their effectiveness? What dosages were used and at what strengths did they gain or lose specific health advantages?

    In this webinar, Dr. Josh Trutt reviews the research on the most effective supplements for cancer prevention. Certain nutrients that are commonly discussed in Age Management, such as curcumin and mushroom extracts, will be explored in this presentation, emphasizing practical details on proper dosing and which formulations should be utilized.

    Topics Discussed:

    • Discuss the latest research on supplements and cancer prevention
    • Develop an understanding of proper supplement usage, dosage, and formulas
    • Identify differences in supplement quality
