IAPAM's hCG Weight Loss Training Gives Physicians a Complete Solution

The IAPAM's hCG Physician Weight Loss Program offers physicians all the tools and training they need to add hCG for Weight Loss to their practices.  Now the IAPAM's program includes NEW Weight Loss Clinic resources, including: waiting room and patient presentations and samples of proven hCG promotional publications.

Las Vegas, NV, December 16, 2010 -- Today, the IAPAM announced that it has enhanced its exclusive IAPAM hCG Training (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com/physician-hcg-weight-loss-training) to include new practice resources, which physicians can customize for their weight loss clinics.  Attendees of the IAPAM's hCG Training program now receive 2 NEW comprehensive presentations to use in a weight management practice:  the IAPAM's hCG Patient Presentation and the IAPAM's hCG Waiting Room Informational Overview. As patient education is critical to the long term success of clients on an hCG protocol, these new clinic resources will assist physicians in addressing patient questions and concerns regarding an hCG program. 

The hCG and Weight Loss Patient Presentation can be customized by each physician for their practice.  This presentation offers hCG patients an overview of hCG and the Exclusive IAPAM hCG Protocol: what it is, how it works, plateaus, phases, etc.  This presentation allows physicians to concisely cover all aspects of the protocol with their patients - it is a significant time saver for physicians and their staff. 

Equally, the IAPAM's hCG Waiting Room Presentation is a unique tool that clinics can customize and present in their wait rooms.  This presentation offers a wealth of information on hCG, the IAPAM hCG protocol, and weight management strategies.  It also includes an overview of "worst foods" for weight management participants.  The presentation is both informative and eye-opening to potential patients.

Finally, the IAPAM's hCG Training program now includes enhanced marketing and advertising samples.  Examples of proven promotional resources, such as "postcards" and print advertisements are showcased as part of the "Business of Weight Management" portion of the IAPAM's hCG Training.

The IAPAM's full day hCG training is the best hCG Physician Training available in North America, and is the only medical weight loss training approved for a special medical malpractice rate for those who have attended and have been certified by the IAPAM.  Along with these new enhancements, the IAPAM's program continues to cover:

-A detailed overview of the exclusive IAPAM hCG Protocol & best practices;
-Understanding of VLCD/LCD diet programs;
-Patient selection criteria;
-Common medical contraindications;
-Current FDA status & requirements;
-Legal/Insurance considerations and special access to hCG Medical Malpractice Insurance Program; and

Top 10: Best Ethical Destinations for Your Vacation in 2011

Report Names Countries Where Human Rights and the Environment Are Protected

Ethical Traveler has just released "The World's Best Ethical Destinations." The annual report identifies 10 countries in the developing world that are working to protect the environment, promote human rights, and encourage responsible tourism.

BERKELEY, USA - (Travel-Newswire - December 15, 2010) -- As the ecotourism movement continues to grow, making a vacation choice that respects the Earth is becoming more and more important to travelers.

To assist vacationers with their travel decision-making, the nonprofit organization Ethical Traveler has just published its 2011 report on "The World's Best Ethical Destinations." Ethical Traveler conducts an annual study of developing nations from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe to identify the best ethical tourism destinations. The group focuses on three general categories: environmental protection, social welfare, and human rights.

The 2011 list (in alphabetical order) includes: Argentina*, Barbados, Chile*, Costa Rica, Dominica*, Latvia, Lithuania*, Palau, Poland* and Uruguay. To read the full report including methodology, please visit http://www.ethicaltraveler.org/destinations/2011.

Report co-author and Executive Director of Ethical Traveler Jeff Greenwald explains, "We sincerely hope that travelers will take this list into account while planning their 2011 travels. By visiting the places honored here, we can enjoy amazing journeys and cross-cultural encounters while showing our respect for countries that care about human rights and the environment."

Co-author Jane Esberg adds, "Developing countries should be encouraged to pursue good behaviors. Tourism can provide an economic incentive to improve human rights, environmental conservation, and social practices."

Some choices, as in past years, will be controversial. "No country, anywhere, is perfect," notes report co-author Natalie Lefevre. "This report showcases the most ethical developing countries, based on dozens of sources and extensive research. But no place gets perfect marks in all aspects."

Ethical Traveler is a California-based non-profit project of the Earth Island Institute. The group's mission is to use the power of tourism to protect human rights and the environment. For more information, please visit http://ethicaltraveler.org.
