WAAAM is dedicated to the protection and preservation of the
health of the public, and the advancement of education in
connection with anti-ageing medicine.
By promoting understanding and research into anti-aging medicine,
it is hoped that the speciality will become better established
in the UK and abroad. The wider use of anti-aging therapies
should lead to general relief from the effects of degenerative
disease, as well as a reduction in the economic burden of
treating and caring for sufferers.
benefits derived from the increased use of anti-aging therapies
and techniques could be immense. If biological ageing can
be delayed, or even reversed, humans could live longer, healthier
lives, without the quality of their later years being impaired
by the onset of degenerative disease.
The WAAAM was incorporated on 15 August 2001 in England/Wales.
It is not a commercial profit-making organization and is registered
with the UK Charity Commission. The Academy has been established
with the support and active involvement of the board of the
American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.
