I attended ACAM 2016 for three days of presentations and meetings with health care professionals from around the country and world. The annual meeting was held September 15-17 at the Hilton El Conquistador hotel in Tucson, Arizona.
This year's event was a joint meeting of the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) and American Association of Physiological Medicine and Dentistry (AAPMD). We not only met naturopaths, chiropractors, and alternative MDs, but also holistic and biological dentists and allied health care professionals.
HPDI is located in Tucson, so having ACAM here this year meant we could staff our booth with six employees, including my father Hank Liers, PhD, founder and formulator of our company.
We were pleased to meet ACAM officers like immediate past president Allen Green, MD of the Center for Optimum Health, and president-elect Ahvie Herskowitz, MD of Antara Medicine.
We met dozens of doctors and dentists, and provided them with samples of many HPDI products, as well as processed reseller applications. We enjoyed extended discussions with Lenny Kundel DMD, Dennis Fera MD, Takako Yanagisawa MD of Yanagisawa clinic in Tokyo, John Staniland MD, and Michael Williams, PhD of Syense, Inc. We also caught up with our hometown friend and client, Brian Cabin MD, whose practice is based in Tucson.
Among the highlights of the event were the opening reception in the exhibitor hall and the dinner hosted on the final evening.
We showcased HPDI's full line of nutritional formulas, giving samples of many foundational supplements (like multivitamins, Essential Fats Plus E, and Pro-C), gut health products like Restore™, Rejuvenate! superfoods, and magnesium formulas like Myo-Mag and Ancient Minerals magnesium chloride products.
We provided samples of Warrior Health topical formulas for sleep, pain, and energy. These remain among the most popular products formulated by Dr. Hank. Warrior Sleep is a perennial favorite with annual meeting attendees who seek improved sleep after having travelled across the country or the globe.
We also presented a Nutrisync genetic test that HPDI now offers to health care professionals for their patients. We have teamed up with Bodysync, Inc. to provide this simple-to-use genetic test. The test results report not only provides details regarding the unique genetic profile of a patient, but also includes a comprehensive Action Plan for clients with recommendations for diet, exercise, and nutrient intake based on a scientific analysis of their genetic profile.
Health professionals can offer the genetic test to their patients, and use the nutrigenomic analysis and action plan to ensure compliance with dietary, supplemental, and exercise goals. For more information, read about the Nutrisync genetic test or this month's blog article on the Benefits of Nutrigenomic Testing for Health.
HPDI team members Bob Simmons, Jim Bergstrom, J. Jerzyk, Roxy Brown, Hank Liers, and I spent time talking to other vendors on the ACAM exhibitor floor. These vendors included Dr. Michael Williams of Sysense, Inc., Max Weiner of Johnson Compounding & Wellness, Brandon Smith of Simply 03, Penny Sneed of Erchonia lasers, Daniel Babadzhanov of Boiron homeopathic, Emily Porter of the Alliance for Natural Health (ANH-USA), and many others.
HPDI extends special thanks to the ACAM management team, including director Veronica Haynes, association manager Liz Pullman, exhibitor service manager Zach Haynes, and meeting planner Katie VanNatta. The ACAM team did an extraordinary job this year in Tucson!!
We at HPDI look forward to attending next year's ACAM 2017 annual meeting September 14-17 in San Juan, Puerto Rico! The meeting will feature continuing collaboration between ACAM and AAPMD.
