The Evolution of Medicine is thrilled to announce its October Functional Forum focusing on immune readiness and how pharmacists can become an important part of a health system that’s built on health creation. This episode of the Forum was recorded at the recent Functional Pharmacy Symposium, which featured not only leading clinical educators, but also pharmacists from across the country who are bringing functional medicine into their businesses in unique and innovative ways.
Throughout the show, we’ll bring you the best clinical content and show you the best way in which pharmacists are integrating with other practitioners and innovating in their own practices. There’s value here for every type of practitioner.
Our first speaker is Jim LaValle, a pharmacist and clinical nutritionist who has been a leading educator in the functional integrative medicine space for decades, and this is his first time on the Functional Forum. As well as having a segment of his lecture, we also did an interview with him where he focused on the hypercritical role of pharmacists in identifying and unwinding polypharmacy, and how particularly it reflects with COVID-19.
Then we featured Lara Zakaria, a pharmacist and leading educator in the space and we’ve got some of the highlights from her session discussing drug-induced nutrient depletion to improve function in patients.
Finally, we feature Dr. Shilpa P. Saxena who will be sharing some of the highlights of her powerful talk on adapting group models for weight loss and type 2 diabetes. She also shares her experience over the pandemic in shifting towards virtual models for groups.
