“Functional Forum is an indispensable resource for practitioners. I felt inspired to apply the valuable practice tips I learned there to reinvigorate my approach to day-to-day patient care as well as my health messaging.”

– Dr Ronald Hoffman, Veteran Integrative Physician and Broadcaster

The Functional Forum is a monthly education and networking event for health professionals who are passionate about the evolution of medicine. Set in the fabulous Helen Mills theater in the heart of Manhattan, this new concept in practitioner education brings together the latest health news, functional medicine research, practice development and health technology in an upbeat, entertaining way.

The Functional Forum curates the industry’s leading innovators in a new mixed-media format that combines interviews, TED-style talks, videos, audience interation, and music. Our sponsors bring you the best healthy snacks and refreshments.

This comes at an exciting time for functional and integrative medicine, not only clinically, but also in the innovative business models being developed around the country. With health politics raising more questions than answers and with technology changing the healthcare landscape for good, there has never been a more ripe time for health innovation.

Who should attend? Medical Stakeholders and Holistic Health Professionals: MD, DO, ND, DC, RN, NP, LAc., DOM, CCN, etc


With the success of our first two events, our next event is taking on another huge topic, mental health. The event is called “The Evolution of Mental Health”. This is such an important topic and we are excited to have some exceptional speakers outlining a new paradigm of effective mental health. Our last event was almost sold out and we are extremely excited to annouce we will be offering video streaming so you can watch wherever you are!
