Event 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:

Since the inception of the Functional Forum as a small NYC-based Meetup Group, we have talked about a kNew vision for American Medicine.

Over the last four years, we have grown to encompass 50 shows, 170 podcasts, countless conferences and summits, four unique practice development products, numerous media appearances and over 100 Meetup Groups across five countries.

We could have never anticipated the level of excitement the Forums would generate about a kNew era in medicine, and we can’t wait to share what we have planned next.

In this month’s episode, Evolution of Medicine will travel back across the highlights of the past 50

Forums to showcase how we got here, the main themes driving our community’s success and why those same themes will bring about a kNew era of predictive, preventive and patient-centered medicine powered by community.

Throughout the one-hour broadcast, you will hear from some of our most popular speakers including:

Dr Kelly Brogan, MD NYT-Best-Selling author of “A Mind of Your Own”

Tom Blue, a veteran and pioneer in the field of direct-primary-care and concierge medicine

Dr Jay Lombard, MD internationally-acclaimed neurologist, author and co-founder of Genomind

Dr Jeffrey Gladd, MD Chief Medical Officer at kNew Health

Dr Terry Wahls, MD University professor, researcher and creator of “The Wahls Protocol” and Functional Medicine textbook and many more

This kNew vision is well on its way to radically shifting how healthcare and functional medicine is procured, distributed, funded and accepted by patients and corporations across the country.

When you RSVP: As part of our educational mission, the Evolution of Medicine will also email you resources on clinical, practice development and other relevant topics for practitioners in functional integrative medicine. As a reminder, you can always adjust email frequency in the footer of each email.
