Institute for Functional Medicine: Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP) UK
October 4-8, 2018— Park Plaza London Riverbank, London, United Kingdom
An epidemic of chronic disease threatens to compromise the health of our population and the effectiveness and economics of our healthcare system. Alarming projections suggest that future generations may have shorter, less healthy lives if current trends continue unchecked.1 Because of its focus on acute care, the current medical model fails to confront both the causes of and solutions for the chronic disease epidemic, and must be replaced with a model of comprehensive care and prevention that is systems-based, integrative, patient-centered, and much more effective. AFMCP™-UK has been designed to meet that challenge. For more information, please visit http://www.afmcp-uk.org/functional-medicine-afmcp-uk/

Institute for Functional Medicine: Detox Advanced Practice Module 2018 (APM)
October 28-30, 2018— JW Marriott Nashville, Nashville, Tennessee
There is persuasive evidence that even low-level toxic exposures contribute to the development of a variety of chronic health conditions, including fatigue, endocrine disruption, and chronic degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s. Given the ubiquitous nature of chemicals in the environment, it is likely that the single exposure model of toxicology is more the exception than the rule. It is therefore critical for clinicians to learn how to assess both exposures and total toxic load to appropriately assess and address each individual’s toxicological situation. For more information, please visit https://ifm.org/learning-center/detox-apm-2018/
