2019 ACAM Annual Meeting: Collaboration Cures

October 17, 2019 @ 8:00 am - October 19, 2019 @ 7:00 pm

The Mission
Over the past few years, a growing body of evidence supports common origins of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, dementia and cancer. Now in their fourth meeting, ACAM and AAPMD
uniquely demonstrate how medicine & dentistry can collaborate in both assessment & treatment of patients for better overall healthcare.

Learning Objectives:
– Promote and share knowledge to reduce human and societal toll from neurodegenerative and inflammatory
disorders, cancer and infectious diseases
– Advance understanding of how recent advances in nutritional science can positively impact on metabolic,
hormonal, and neurochemical communications networks
– Advance understanding of the impact of oral pathology and sleep disorders on immune and hormone systems and
its impact on chronic degenerative diseases
– Enhance diagnosis and care of adults with stroke, dementia and other neurodegenerative conditions based on
sound scientific evidence

Sub Objectives:
– Interpret evidence that nutritional choices positively and negatively affect inflammation and mitochondrial function
– Identify and treat epigenetic drivers of inflammation such as hormonal and immune dysregulation and reduced
energy utilization
– Determine genetic and epigenetic risk factors for developing complications of infectious diseases such as
neurodegerative and cardiovascular disease, autoimmunity and cancer
– Understand the epidemiology, impact and therapeutic options for patients with neurodegenerative disorders
