Dear Functional Forum Supporter,
First off, thank you for being a part of the Evolution of Medicine community, and for your interest in initiating a local Functional Forum meetup group in your area.
One of the biggest frustrations we hear from practitioners who practice this type of medicine is that they feel isolated from the rest of their medical community who don’t “get” the true value of what they offer. The purpose of the Functional Forum local meetup groups is to help you develop a community of practitioners in your area who “get it,” to build your referral network, add value to your practice, your community and the movement at large.
To help you develop your local community, we host our Functional Forum event on the first Monday of each month and have made it easy for you to host an event to share the broadcast with your local community.
We are very selective about the content and speakers that we curate, so you are sure to get practitioner educational programming that brings together the top medical talent in this space, latest health news, functional medicine research, practice development strategies and health technology in an upbeat, entertaining way.
By initiating a local Functional Forum meetup group, you can expect to:
- Stimulate referrals from specialists and other practitioners
- Develop a community of likeminded providers in your area
- Create an environment that helps your community of holistically minded health professionals to become stronger
We broadcast the Functional Forum. You rally the attendees. If you are interested in setting up a Functional Forum meetup in your area, please apply.
The Meetup FAQ document below provides you with a step-by-step guide to planning the perfect event, event-day timing, and best practices for running your event.
We also have a podcast with 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.
We deeply appreciate your participation.
CEO and Founder, Evolution of Medicine
