Event Overview
Welcome message:

Join us at the Cleveland Clinic 11th Annual Dr. Roizen's Preventive and Integrative Medicine Conference


This conference will change your life, and also that of your family, your patients, and your practice!

Nationally known experts will discuss origins of inflammation, how we can plan for early detection, and steps to prevent it.

You will also learn about the impact of the microbiome on your joints, and understand the data that supplements and foods have on inflammation.  We will learn about which prescriptions really work, and if there is another great discovery like aspirin on the horizon. 

Distinguished faculty include:

Jason Theodosakis, MD
National best-selling author of The Arthritis Cure

Leonard Calabrese, DO
Cleveland Clinic


Jonathon Eisen
University of California, Davis

Charles N. Serhan, MD
Brigham and Women’s Hospital



As use of preventive and integrative medical approaches increases, so does your need to know the current risk-benefit data, potential applications, and how to integrate these therapies into clinical practice. Acknowledging that many of the treatments are still outside mainstream medicine, this conference will help you become familiar with the evidence base for them and how to discuss them with patients or prescribe them.

At this conference, presenters will focus on inflammation and the microbiome, arthritis, supplements, and food. Expert faculty will discuss up-to-date scientific information on research evaluating the use of wellness treatments to prevent and treat inflammatory disorders.

This conference will provide you with current, scientific evidence on a variety of topics related to inflammation and associated disorders including pathology, autoimmune diseases, and the microbiome connection to autoimmune disorders. Other topics include the gluten-gut inflammation link and using weight loss to reduce osteoarthritis. A final set of presentations will review the effects of herbs, supplements, and stress modulators to reduce inflammation risk, including an evidence-based look at Omegas 3, 5, 7, and 9.

The format will focus on evidence-based discussions, helping you understand the benefits and risks of these treatments. Learn how to integrate them into a patient-specific management plan, which will ultimately translate into improved patient outcomes.
