Featured Live Presentation & Discussion

Feel Your Best! – An Insider’s Guide to Thriving Despite your Diagnosis!

Joanne Pappas Nottage, Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach



Are you feeling your best and want to stay healthy?
Do you have pain, allergies, fatigue, digestive or other symptoms that persist despite working with your doctor?
Have you been diagnosed with a food intolerance or an autoimmune disease?
Are you considering alternatives to western medicine but don’t know where to start?

If this sounds like you or someone you know, please join us to learn how functional medicine – a personalized, systems-oriented model that addresses the underlying causes of disease – can help you heal or keep you healthy and feeling your best!

Joanne Pappas Nottage, a health coach who has learned how to thrive despite living with autoimmune disease, will share information to help you understand Functional Medicine and how to navigate a path to healing using a collaborative approach with western medicine.

We will be featuring a local speaker each month to share their journey to better health or introduce a topic of interest or approach to better health that might be of interest to our group. Please let me know if you're interested in being a featured speaker at an upcoming meeting!

Recorded Functional Forum Presentation: The Evolution of Pediatrics.

Of all the medical specialties, Pediatrics has been the slowest to evolve due to its traditionally conservative viewpoint. However, with a massive rise in chronic pediatric illness, more and more pediatricians (and parents) are looking for answers outside of the conventional box.

In this episode, we traveled across the country to meet with pediatric practices and practitioners on the cutting edge of this medical evolution.

First, we interview two sister pediatricians, Dr. Nicole Shorrock, who was featured on the June Forum: “Evolution of Neurology” and her sister, Dr. Katie Long, who practice together as part of a hospital-based practice near Sacramento, California. They share how they have been able to practice functionally inside a conventional medical system.

Next, we met with Dr. Sheila Kilbane, an integrative pediatrician based on Charlotte, North Carolina who was featured on last summer's “Journey to 100”. Dr. Kilbane showed us around her practice and talked about antibiotics, gut health and chronic illness.

Also featured is Kimberly Shirk, a Physician's Assistant trained in functional and integrative medicine and member of our Practice Accelerator and Membership Practice Builder programs from Columbia, South Carolina. Kimberly has built an interdisciplinary pediatric clinic, including midwifery and functional medicine, using a low-cost direct primary care model — an evolution in the business model of integrative pediatrics!

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.
