With the theme Health and Wellness for You and Your Patients, the 2014 Annual Alumni Meeting will take a big-picture look at how to live a healthy life. Speakers including Drs. Tieraona Low Dog, Peter Jacobsen, Robert Miller, Robert Frazer, Marc Geissberger, Bernadette Fa and Noelle Santucci will lecture on topics such as lifestyles that contribute to vitality and wellbeing; foods, concepts and compounds that support health; step-by-step approaches to wellness; emotional intelligence and its effect on wellness; brain fitness; and the role of Omega-3 in oral and systemic health.
In addition, Dr. Birte Melsen will address orthodontists on combining aesthetics and biomechanics as our Annual Frederick West Lectureship speaker. On Friday a panel of experts will be available to talk to members about starting or selling a practice, and on both days commercial exhibitors and students’ research posters will be located in the Terrace Room for viewing.
