Several physicians affiliated with the Life Extension Foundation were among the featured presenters at the 13th Annual International Congress on Anti-Aging Medicine, held December 9-12, 2005, in Las Vegas, NV. The meeting was co-sponsored by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M), a non-profit medical society dedicated to advancing technology, promoting research, and providing education for the purpose of optimizing the human aging process.
The annual Congress is the world’s premier scientific conference on topics relating to medical interventions to prevent and treat diseases and disabilities associated with aging. Congress presenters examine a broad array of the most promising areas of preventive medicine, ranging from stem cell therapeutics and regenerative medicine to cardiovascular disease prevention and treatment, biomarkers of aging, and hormone replacement and vitamin therapies.
This year’s meeting set a record for attendance, drawing more than 5,000 physicians, health care practitioners, business leaders, and other attendees from more than 50 nations around the world. As A4M Chairman Dr. Robert Goldman noted, “these 5,000 participants represent the most innovative pioneers in advancements in life enhancement and life extension medicine around the world.”
