Description

The Evolution of Neurology

[This is a FREE event for HEALCARE PRACTITIONERS ONLY]

Join us as we watch and discuss the June 2017 Functional Forum: The Evolution of Neurology. The Evolution of Medicine will be bringing us footage from the annual IFM conference as well as, special footage from the EvoMed pre-conference party. The theme for IFM’s Annual Conference is "The Dynamic Brain: Revealing the Potential of Neuroplasticity to Reverse Neurodegeneration.

This conference comes at an interesting time for neurology. We will be hearing from speakers who are conducting the most exciting research in the field. The keynote, Dr. Dale Bredesen, of the Buck Institute, has successfully, with his Functional Medicine protocol, reversed MCI – mild cognitive impairment, as well as, Alzheimer’s disease.

Dr. Bredesen will be joined by luminaries from the field of evolved neurology, along with those who are working on the front lines of care, including Dr. Kara Fitzgerald, Dr. David Perlmutter, and Dr. Mark Menolascino. Dr. Perlmutter, also known as the Empowering Neurologist, will be back on the show for a 2nd interview. Dr. Fitzgerald, an expert in the area of methylation, will join us to talk about how methylation affects the brain. Dr. Menolascino has been treating patients with these issues for two decades using Functional Medicine and will be sharing some of his best practices. Join us June 5th as we accelerate the evolution of neurology!

Why Attend a Meetup?
One of the biggest frustrations we 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 true value of what you offer. The purpose of the Functional Forum local meetup groups is to help you to develop a community of practitioners in your area who “get it”, to build your referral network, add value to your practice, your community, and the movement at large.
Anyone can tune into our Functional Forum event via livestream. What really excites us is when our events create dialogue between practitioners that are sharing best practices, asking tough questions, and helping each other to create the greatest impact with their patients and communities. It gives you the opportunity to not only network but also, keep your finger on the pulse of what’s happening in your own healthcare community.
