Description

Why Attend our Meetup?
One of the biggest frustrations I hear from practitioners who practice the type of medicine that you do is that you feel isolated from the rest of their medical community who don’t “get” the real value of what you offer. The purpose of our Functional Forum local meetup group is to help to develop a community of practitioners in Ottawa who “get it”, to build a referral network, add value to your practice, your community, and the movement at large.

Who should attend the meetup?
This meetup is primarily for healthcare practitioners who have an interest in functional, holistic, integrative and naturopathic medicine including Chiropractors, Dentists, Dietitians, Hypnotherapists, Medical Doctors, Naturopathic Doctors, Nutritionists, Osteopaths and Registered Massage Therapists.

Video Highlights of Latest Functional Forum: Prescribing Lifestyle Medicine.

Evolution of Medicine is thrilled to be heading back to the UK for our February Functional Forum: “Prescribing Lifestyle Medicine”.

This historic Forum will bring you the top highlights from the first-ever lifestyle medicine conference endorsed by the Royal College of Physicians: “Prescribing Lifestyle Medicine”.

If you’ve ever needed a sign that integrative medicine has hit the mainstream, this is it!

We will also be hearing directly from the conference’s speakers: Dr Rangan Chatterjee, Dr Ayan Panja and Dr Michael Ash, along with other young physicians who have been inspired by the movement to start practising lifestyle and functional medicine.

Featured speakers include:

Dr. Rangan Chatterjee Bsc (Hons), MRCP MRCGP UK International Functional Forum host, is leading the charge with his acclaimed BBC One series: “Doctor in the House”, and his new #1 best-selling book, “The Four Pillar Plan”―which topped the charts last week on Amazon UK and has been serialized by major publishers like The Telegraph.

Dr Ayan Panja MRCGP works with Dr Chatterjee and has been practising lifestyle medicine for many years. Having had postgraduate training in the UK and the USA, he is keen to share his knowledge, skills and experience with colleagues.

Dr Michael Ash DO, ND, BSc (Hons) RNT is a published scientific author and has built one of the largest integrative medicine clinics in the southwest of England. For over 20 years he has specialised in the mucosal immune system, in particular, that related to the gastrointestinal tract and has developed and refined many effective non-pharmacological clinical strategies for functional and pathological disruptions.
