November 2020 Functional Forum: The Politics of Functional Medicine
Monday, November 2, 2020
5pm PDT, 7pm CDT & 8pm EDT
- Andy Harris, MD
- Timothy Frie
- Paulette Jordan
The Evolution of Medicine is thrilled to announce its next Functional Forum, which falls the night before the US presidential election. The year 2020 has shown us that politics and medicine are inextricably linked not just in America, but around the world. In this episode, we will be looking at that connection and plotting a way forward for the functional and integrative medicine movement.
Joining us, co-hosting live with James Maskell, will be Timothy Frie, who is the founder of the Reform Health Caucus, a new political action committee (PAC) with a goal of taking integrative and functional medicine forward by engaging candidates on the issues surrounding integrative health, health access, health equality, chronic disease and chronic disease reversal.
We will also hear from politicians in the field. We’ll share an interview with Paulette Jordan, who is running for US Senate in Idaho, on her recent tour of Functional Medicine of Idaho. We had a chance to sit down with her and talk about politics, and why she’s so passionate about functional integrative medicine and why it must be involved at the political level.
Finally, we will hear from Dr. Andy Harris, a congressman from Maryland and a physician. He will be talking about the cross-section of the supplement industry, politics and medical practice.
In this episode, we will also explore how a win for either party in the US presidential election will affect functional integrative medicine in the years to come. Looking forward to seeing you at the Forum!
