Course Details

Syllabus Information:

All attendees will receive an electronic syllabus.  A printed syllabus is available to all those that requested one during the registration process. . The eSyllabus will be available for download at least three days prior to the course. Attendees will be sent an email notification when it is available. This early release provides the opportunity to download and study the syllabus and additional speaker handouts. The syllabus can be saved in Adobe Reader which allows attendees to add "sticky notes" directly on the slide as the speaker is talking.  These notes can be saved permanently to your document.  If you are using adobe, each lecture is bookmarked. If you need instructions on how to use this please ask Dana at the conference.  Other recommended applications include iBooks (for apple mobile devices) and iAnnotate (for mobile devices). 

 Pre-Course Test:

In our efforts towards continuous improvement for our course curriculum, the Foundation for Care Management has requested that all attendees take a pre-test. Visit the FCM website to take the pre-test: FCM Pre-Test.  The Course code is:  WLHB10617P1

Notification will be sent out after the course with links to complete the post-test and survey or simply refer to the first page of your printed or electronic syllabus.  These must be completed to claim your credit.  The exam and survey are usually posted the day after the event has completed.  Your certificate will be available to print online once the survey has been completed.

 Shuttle Service and Pick-Up Location

Incoming guests will find the shuttle service outside of door four if you’re flying into Omaha.  The vehicle, with the driver standing nearby, will be parked in the lane on the other side of the center median.  The vehicles are clearly marked ‘Lied Lodge & Conference Center’.  Shuttle service has been arranged based on arrival times and the driver has flight information to monitor flight status for the attendees

 Lodging Room Reservations

Everyone should have received their hotel confirmation number.  The shuttle will drop you at the Lied Lodge or the Best Western depending on where you are staying.  At check-in you'll receive a Worldlink Welcome Packet along with information about the lodge itself.  You will be given a name badge that will serve as both the badge for the lodge and the conference itself.  We recommend keeping this badge with you while on the property.  If you are eating in the dining room the badge identifies you with the group and meals are included with your registration price.

 Meeting Room and Registration

  • Registration opens each morning at 7:00 a.m.
  • Meeting Start Time is 8:00 a.m.

 Lunch Schedule

Lunch both days will be at Steinhart Lodge, one of the historic buildings on the property.  JR from Medfit is speaking on Friday and Neal will be sharing fun stories on Saturday.  It’s a short walk outside from the convention meeting area.

 Friday Dinner Activity

We have a group dinner on Friday night at their historic barn.  The barn is covered but sides are open, it’s designed to be casual and fun but bring a sweater or light jacket as it could turn cool.  We’ll have entertainment, lawn games and open bar.  They will have 2 grills going for a big barbecue with lots of fresh food.  Many thanks to MedQuest Pharmacy for sponsoring the bar and entertainment.  Arrive around 6:30, dinner is scheduled for 7:00 pm.  Stay as long as you like.

 All Other Meals and Activities

Breakfast and Saturday night dinner are on your own so feel free to eat in the main dining at your leisure.  Your badge lets them know your meal is paid for.  Only alcohol is not included.  There is also a nice bar area off the restaurant.  Since most of the lodge is occupied by our group feel free to join a colleague for dinner or breakfast if you see someone you know.

The healthcare system we know today is in crisis. Too many chronically ill patients are seeking care in a sick care model that often treats symptoms with a pill instead of treating the underlying root cause of disease. What would happen if we trained healthcare practitioners to help patients address the real causes of disease with lifestyle medicine, rather than just treating disease risk factors? Our goal this weekend is to continue our exploration into better serving the needs of your patients with more natural and integrative approaches in order to help your patients live a better life.

A few months ago we surveyed the group for topics our learners felt they needed additional training in.  The top two lecture topics were once again GI and inflammatory issues, along with using food as medicine. We plan to cover both topics with one of our featured speakers, Gerard Mullin, MD, author of Gut Balance Revolution. Dr. Mullin plans to teach us how to diagnose and treat the gut with some traditional medicine, but mostly by using the foods we eat to treat and maintain gut health. We’ll look at dysboisis, gut microbe imbalance, and explore the hidden secret to keeping your gut balanced with proper food intake:  The hidden secret is weight loss. Our goal will be to identify simple solutions that work for a variety of GI inflammatory processes, and which are easily implemented in primary care and lifestyle practices.

Also in the planning stages are lectures on the use of low dose naltrexone (LDN) and metformin. While you are familiar with metformin for the treatment of PCOS, there is plenty of literature to support its use for both prostate and breast cancer. In addition, LDN is gaining increasing popularity for a multitude of conditions that might be relevant for your patients and to your practice.

With so many continued requests for additional information on hormone therapy (HT), we’ll also explore case studies from both Neal Rouzier and our other guest speakers.  We’ll look at why patients sometimes experience anxiety when hormones are started, and discuss case studies identifying this as a treatable concern. Neal will update the group on legal issues, but will spend considerable time sharing how he identifies good literature from bad.  The group will review studies together and become familiar with what to look for and how to interpret.  Neal is committed to helping attendees be comfortable and self-assured in the research they do, and wants practitioners to be able to confidently converse with patients and colleagues when questions arise.

All this and more will be presented in an all-inclusive-resort experience where we will enjoy meals, entertainment, and 260 acres owned by the Arbor Day Foundation and Lied Lodge conference center.  We have a new format this year where your registration fee includes the course fee, lodging, food, entertainment and transportation, leaving the group more time to spend with each other. Please plan to join us for this special event!
