2015 Conference Calendar
The Institute for Functional Medicine 2015 Annual Conference
May 28-30, 2015—JW Marriot, Austin, Texas
Join the Institute for Functional Medicine’s 2015 Annual International Conference: “The ‘Omics’ Revolution: Nature and Nurture.” The 2015 Annual International Conference will focus on the exploding literature that describes how variations in single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) can, in concert with environmental triggers, change the way we metabolize drugs, affect how we excrete or biotransform toxins, modify how we respond to stress, and control how we assimilate and use nutrients. In short, these genetic SNPs, in concert with the environmental milieu, can increase or decrease our risk for a variety of diseases. This reflects our changing understanding of personalized medicine and brings the hope that we can understand our personal DNA fingerprint much closer to reality.
