The American Medical Association Senior Physicians Section (SPS) invites you to this special educational program during the 2014 Annual Meeting of the AMA House of Delegates. This year's assembly meeting will include discussion of AMA House of Delegates' business items and future AMA-SPS activities. The keynote presentation will begin at 12:30 pm, immediately after the Assembly.
Dr. Cooper, a former U.S. Air Force physician and director of the Aerospace Medical Laboratory, became interested in the role of exercise in preserving health. As a leading pioneer of preventive medicine, he will discuss some of his lifelong experiences focusing on health and wellness and how they link to longevity and quality of life.
Long an advocate for moving the field of medicine away from disease treatment to disease prevention, Dr. Cooper will talk about the challenges and opportunities physicians face in maintaining health and well-being. He will also provide insights into how to improve health outcomes in the senior population.
To live better—both sooner and later—and to add years to your life, Dr. Cooper challenges everyone to follow healthy lifestyle changes.
We hope you can join us and enjoy the fellowship of your senior physician colleagues.
