Concussions & CTE: Insights from a Life Bashing Heads
Standard Process Activity Center, Main Stage

In this course, you will identify the mechanism and etiology of concussion and chronic traumatic encephalopathy. Dr. Nowinski will discuss evidence for repetitive head impact causing CTE while discussing the prevention of concussions and CTE in sports. Whether you are a doctor treating patients with concussions or have children playing sports, your awareness will be heightened by the latest research studies.

(Welcome Address) Transforming Amputee Outcomes: Practical Insights for Healthcare Providers
Standard Process Activity Center, Main Stage

This course introduces and explores advanced topics in the biomechanical, neurological, and metabolic changes found in patients with amputations, focusing on interdisciplinary approaches and emerging research areas. Participants will explore the primary effects of limb loss and the secondary effects which include heterotopic ossification (HO), complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), phantom limb pain (PLP), and metabolic changes. Additionally, discussions will cover spinal conditions in amputees, gait and biomechanical considerations, the four-bar mechanism of the knee, joint replacement, comorbid conditions, and limb salvage. Through lectures, case studies, and interactive sessions, attendees will gain valuable insights to enhance their clinical practice and improve patient outcomes.

The Four Pillars of Healing and Wellbeing
Standard Process Activity Center, Main Stage

Dr. Rediger will report on 19 years of research into the lives of remarkable individuals with medical evidence for recovery from incurable medical illnesses. Through a combination of stories, science, and solutions, he will demonstrate what becomes possible when we focus not just on disease management but also on the pillars of deep healing and wellbeing. The argument is that we should be studying improbable recoveries with the same vigor with which we study ultimate achievement in sports and business. This effort is particularly important given that approximately 85 percent of illnesses are lifestyle-related, including all the major killers, such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, autoimmune illness, and lung disease. Yet in traditional medicine, we tragically continue to treat symptoms rather than causes, and as if they are incurable illnesses rather than lifestyle illnesses. We will discuss the four pillars of healing and well-being as well as the power of grounded, ethical hope in the context of a science of health and a medicine of hope and possibility.

Insights with Andrew Huberman
Standard Process Activity Center, Main Stage

In this fascination and depth discussion, Dr Huberman will touch on topics of interest including contributions to the fields of brain development, brain function and neural plasticity – the ability of our nervous system to rewire and learn new behaviors, skills and cognitive functioning. He also works on neural regeneration and directs a clinical trial to promote visual restoration in diseases that cause blindness and focuses on the influence of vision and respiration on human performance and brain states such as fear and courage.

How to Prepare for the Precision Medicine Era: A Genomic Perspective on Health and Disease
Standard Process Activity Center, Main Stage

Traditional approaches to medicine are rapidly evolving with the integration of genomics, which enables a more precise understanding of disease mechanisms, vulnerability, and treatment efficacy. This course will detail the pivotal role of genomic data in pioneering the era of precision medicine, fundamentally altering approaches to health care and new therapeutic development. Finally, the implications of these advancements for patient care are explored, including the impact of reversing disabilities and curing previously untreatable diseases.

Sports-Related Concussion and Its Relationship to Recurring Musculoskeletal Injuries
Standard Process Activity Center, Main Stage

This 2-hour presentation will delve into the relationship between sports-related concussions and recurring musculoskeletal injuries. Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of how concussions can influence and contribute to the development of recurring musculoskeletal issues in athletes. The presentation will cover the pathophysiology of concussions, the pathophysiological mechanisms linking concussions to recurring injuries, and the implications for prevention and management strategies.

Look Again: How to Notice and Change
Standard Process Activity Center, Main Stage

We will explore how the brain generates a sense of happiness, from the importance of optimism and a sense of control to the impact of social factors, and how we can use this knowledge to induce behavioural change that makes people happier and healthier. Even stimulating jobs, breathtaking works of art, and exciting new gadgets lose their sparkle. We desensitize to what is wonderful around us and stop noticing what is not-so-great around us like cracks in a relationship, inefficiencies in the workplace and more. It is not that we are lazy or stupid, more so that our brain has evolved to respond to what is new and different, not to things that are constant or change gradually. As a result, we stop noticing what is suboptimal and fail to make changes. We also stop seeing what is good and do not feel joy. But what if we could ‘dishabituate’? Based on her new book: Look Again, Sharot shares what psychology and biology tell us about why we stop noticing both the great and not-so-great things around us and how to regain sensitivity in the office, at home, online, and at the store so we can enjoy what is good and change what’s not.

Myth Busters: Neurology Edition
Standard Process Activity Center, Main Stage

False information spreads faster than facts, and one of the negatives of living in the social media era is that everyone is given a microphone. It’s up to us, evidence-based providers, to put these myths to bed for good! This course covers some of the prevalent myths about brain health and busts them to pieces.

Age-Proof Your Brain
Standard Process Activity Center, Main Stage

There is much more to keeping your brain in tip-top shape and lowering your risk for dementia than crossword puzzles, brain games, and Sudoku. But the statistics are staggering. Forty-seven million people have dementia worldwide, and that number is projected to double in the next 20 years. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. We, not our genes, can have control over our cognitive destiny. Significant and just-published studies point us to a compelling conclusion and powerful message: Serious mental decline is not an inevitable part of aging. Your short and long-term brain health is in your hands, and the risk of dementia can be lowered by 60% if the proper actionable steps are taken now.
