The Mission
In the past few years, a growing body of evidence supports the belief that the epidemic of chronic diseases have common origins. Cardiovascular disease, diabetes, dementia and even cancer as well as learning, performance and behavior issues have multiple common causes and can take decades to develop.

For the 4th Congress of the AAMS we have been invited to join 2 allied health professional societies at a joint meeting, the AAPMD (American Academy of Physiyological Medicine and Dentistry, www.aapmd.org), and ACAM (American College for the Advancement of Medicine www.acam.org).
This will be a tremendous opportunity to explore interdisciplinary, precision medicine approaches to care, swelling the number of attendees to well over 1000 and swelling the exhibit hall to well over 50 groups present.

The Meeting
We encourage you to check out the entire program. This meeting will feature presentations to the combined groups as well as separate presentations to each on their focus and interest. In addition, there are workshops, case studies, combined receptions and networking opportunities.

Our exhibit hall will feature our passionate corporate supporters offering products and services to supply your practice needs towards a more collaborative path.

The Future of Medicine & Dentistry
We hope that when you leave the conference, you take the spirit of collaboration with you and help us continue to grow it, not just at future annual conferences, but at events, webinars, and communications throughout the year.
