Target Audience
Obstetrician/Gynecologists, Family Physicians, Internists, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants
Program Purpose / Objectives
  1. Lifestyle Medicine “ Living Consciously”
    • How a patient’s lifestyle choices impact their health and strategies to address positive changes in their lives.
  2. Functional Medicine- “Form Follows Function”
    • How to approach a disease process by identifying the root cause and tailoring the treatment to alleviate the root cause not simply treat the symptoms.
  3. Diet and Nutrition - “You are what you eat”
    • Knowledge regarding nutrition and diet as they relate to disease prevention and immune surveillance.
  4. Vitamins, Antioxidants and “ biologically active compounds”
    • Knowledge of the daily requirements of vitamins and antioxidants as well as natural sources of these is missing. Knowing how and when to supplement the diet is essential for health and wellness.
  5. Breast Cancer prevention and early detection
    • Physicians rarely focus on the fact that 75% of breast cancers are preventable with lifestyle modification. Education regarding the ability to positively change their patient’s risk profile is needed.
  6. Obesity – “The growing trend in America and the World”
    • Understanding that obesity is epidemic and responsible for a majority of our preventable diseases.
  7. Integrative Therapies in Western Medicine
    • Western medical professions have minimal understanding how complementary and integrative therapies can enhance their patients care.
  8. Exercise- “ Physical activity a mandatory lifestyle change”
    • Upon completion of this section, the clinician should possess an understanding of basic exercise physiology and how regular physical activity can lead to decreased cardiac risk and the risk of other diseases.
  9. Weight Loss- “Surgical intervention and the diet disasters” Pitfalls and positives
    • At the completion of the weight management session, the practitioner should feel comfortable counseling patients on weight loss options complete with the risks, benefits and alternatives to each.
  10. Holistic Approach to Menopause and Osteoporosis- “A more natural way to face the changes”
    • Upon completion of a holistic approach to menopause the clinician should feel comfortable discussing the non-pharmacological interventions for osteoporosis prevention and easing the symptoms of menopause.
  11. Cardiac Disease Prevention
    • Upon completion of the Cardiac disease prevention segment, the practitioner should be able to educate patients as to what opportunities for improvement they have in their individual cases. Creating open direct communication with patients is essential.
  12. Skin Care for Life - The pathophysiology of aging
    • Upon completion of this segment, clinicians should be able to discuss epi-genetics and the aging process. They should have gained knowledge of how these processes can be halted and possibly reversed.
  13. Skin Cancer - Prevention, diagnosis and treatment
    • At the close of this skin session, practitioners should be able to identify skin lesions that require biopsy and be able to educate their patients about how to protect their skin and their children’s skin from further damage.
  14. Gynecological Cancer - Prevention and early detection
    • At the conclusion of this lecture, practitioners should gain the knowledge to know who and when to vaccinate for cervical cancer prevention as well as the limitations and risks. They should be able to recognize the red flags of genetic syndromes that increase the risk of ovarian and endometrial cancer, and can assist in counseling patients regarding testing and surveillance.
Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.

Ports of Call
Cozumel, Mexico - The Conquistadors first saw Mexico from the shores of Cozumel while searching for gold. Today, visitors to the island continue to seek out gold and silver jewelry in the shops of San Miguel while having a great time in its many local bars and restaurants. Plus, the waters around Cozumel's sheltered coral reefs make this one of the best snorkeling areas in the world.
Falmouth, Jamaica - Step off the ship and step back in time. You might not think so at first glance but little Falmouth was an economic and shipping powerhouse and center for dramatic social change during the English Colonial Period. Founded and named Martha Brae Point in 1769 by local English planter, Thomas Reid, Falmouth became the transshipment hub for the sugar plantations covering the hills of the North Coast of Jamaica. Edward Barrett, a wealthy English planter, strongly influenced the early development of Falmouth. From the wharfs of Falmouth, sugar, molasses, rum and coffee were sent to England while ships carrying African slaves and all the necessities of 18th century colonial life dropped anchor in the bustling port town. You'll return with sun kissed skin, timeless memories as well as interesting historical tidbits to share with friends, like this one: Falmouth received piped water before New York City.
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida - There is an abundance of things to see and do in the Ft. Lauderdale area: visit the newly redesigned Ft. Lauderdale Beach and cafes, stroll the historic Riverwalk, shop the luxurious stores on Las Olas Boulevard or adventure to the Everglades for an intriguing air boat excursion.
Labadee, Haiti - This tropical paradise, reserved exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests, features pristine beaches, walking trails and breathtaking vistas. Labadee is the perfect setting for parasailing, wave runners and the kayak tour, all available on your own private island.

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link below. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
