The Evolution of Medicine is thrilled to announce the next Functional Forum event on the topic of resilience. We called 2020 the Year of Resilience and looking back over the first half of the year, resilience has become one of the most important topics out there, on many levels. Last month, we focused on immune resilience, and this month, we’re talking about the technologies of measuring and building health resilience. We will hear from leading physicians in the field who are driving the conversation on technology and how it can be used to build resilience.

First, we’ll hear from Dr. Molly Maloof, a functional medicine physician and Stanford lecturer. She will share some of the technology and devices used to measure resilience, as well as organizations to look out for that are on the cutting edge of helping people achieve health resilience.

Dr. Cheng Ruan, who is a leader in using technology to build resilience in his patients, will talk about how he uses group visits, and now virtual group visits, to create connection and community for his patients that are leading to positive health outcomes.

We’ll also hear from Dr. Yael Joffe, who is a leader in the field of nutrigenomics. She will share how genetic testing is at the cornerstone of understanding our own unique resilience and how that can become part of the broader functional medicine conversation.

Last but not least, we’ll hear from Dr. Patrick Hanaway, who has been spearheading the Institute for Functional Medicine’s COVID-19 response efforts, about how the technology of resilience plays into our understanding of the virus and what preventative steps patients can take to fortify their health resilience.
