Event description


The Functional Medicine Meet-Up is designed for functional, integrative practitioners to come together and create a networking, referral system. I am happy to say that we have had over 50 different functional medicine attendees join our group of the last year. We have designed this group as a way for you and your collegeaus to come together, network and learn more about each other.

Please feel free to invite other practitioners. This group is intended for practitioners in the integrative and functional medicine field, who want to network, collaborate, learn.... about the functional medicine! We have about 50 practitioners (MD, DO, NP, PA, DC, AC, Nutritionist, PT, MT, spiritual healers, health coaches, and more..) involved in our group. We would love for you to join us!

At this months event, we will be featuring key note speaker Frank Bodnar, DC, MSc.
