Dear Functional Forum Supporter,
If you are reading this, thank you for becoming a part of the Evolution of Medicine community. Our plan for delivering lasting change in medicine is to empower physicians and providers to deliver high value, community focused, root cause resolution medicine in every zip code of this country.
One of the biggest frustrations we hear from doctors practicing this medicine, whether you know it as integrative, functional or holistic, is that they feel isolated from the rest of their medical community who don’t “get” what they are trying to do. The purpose of this document is to help you to develop that community in your area, adding value to your practice, your community and the movement at large.
Our plan revolves around getting a local group together to watch the Functional Forum, our monthly live interactive web show for health professionals who are passionate about the Evolution of Medicine. Our innovative approach to practitioner education brings together the top medical talent in this space, latest health news, functional medicine research, practice development and health technology in an upbeat, entertaining way.
By initiating a local group, you can expect to
- Stimulate referrals to and from specialists and other practitioners
- Develop a community of like minded providers in your area
- Play a significant part in accelerating the Evolution of Medicine
We create the content, all you have to do is rally the attendees. If you are interested in setting up a Functional Forum meetup in your area, please fill out this form. You can see the topic and speakers for the next Forum by clicking here.
The documents below gives you a step by step guide to setting up a group meeting that adds value to everyone in attendance, no matter how introverted, extraverted, experienced or novice. Also, we have recorded a podcast with the two health coaches that created our first ever meetup in January 2015 at Mass General Hospital in Boston.
You can listen to that podcast here:
We believe that real answers to our medical crisis will require the thinking of many stakeholders and have set up a system to achieve that and more.
Please let us know your feedback on this document and your experience with your meetups, we are always looking to improve our offerings and user feedback is critical to that process. We deeply appreciate your participation.
