American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine
Anti-aging medicine is founded on the application of advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of age-related dysfunction, disorders, and diseases. It is a healthcare model promoting innovative science and research to prolong the healthy lifespan in humans. As such, anti-aging medicine is based on principles of sound and responsible medical care that are consistent with those applied in other preventive health specialties. The phrase “anti-aging,” as such, relates to the application of advanced biomedical technologies focused on the early detection, prevention, and treatment of aging-related disease. The goal of anti-aging medicine is not to merely prolong the total years of an individual’s life, but to ensure that those years are enjoyed in a productive and vital fashion.
The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) was founded in 1992, and since then has served as an advocate for the new clinical specialty of anti-aging medical science. The A4M is the world’s largest professional organization dedicated to advancing research and clinical pursuits that enhance the quality, and extend the quantity, of the human lifespan.

Community Pharmacists of Indiana (CPI)
Community Pharmacies of Indiana, Inc., (“CPI”) was established in 1993 after a group of pharmacy owners met to discuss changing prescription drug plans in the state. One of CPI’s main goals as an organization is to promote pharmacy as a profession and the role of the community retail pharmacy in the American concept of free enterprise by maintaining freedom of choice of pharmacy to all citizens of the state.
In addition, we have maintained vigilance in the administrative, legislative, and government affairs affecting the practice of retail pharmacy in the interest of the public welfare and to assure professional control of the pharmacy by pharmacists. To do all of this, CPI works closely with the Indiana General Assembly to ensure that the remaining community pharmacies in Indiana survive and thrive. We are the voice of community pharmacies in Indiana.
Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB)
Established by eight of the nation’s leading pharmacy organizations in 2007, Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB) based on (USP)¹ United States Pharmacopeial Convention standards, offers the most comprehensive compliance solution in the industry. PCAB accreditation in combination with the pharmacy’s commitment to continuous compliance significantly reduces the risk associated with compounding medications.
