To kick off the fall series of presentations hosted by the Delaware Valley chapter of the Functional Forum, local guest speaker Wendy Warner, M.D., founder of Medicine in Balance, in Langhorne, will present on the topic of toxicity at 7 p.m. on September 27.
The evening will include both the live presentation by Warner and a screening of footage from the Functional Forum episode filmed at the Environmental Health Symposium in San Diego, California. Dinner will be provided, with time for Q&A, large and small group discussion and networking.
Warner’s talk, entitled “The Evolution of Environmental Medicine—Surviving and Thriving in a Toxic World”, is sponsored by Metagenics and will focus on the history of environmental medicine, the main five environmental toxins and how to reduce exposure to them on a community-wide scale.
The event is an evening of education, inspiration, connection and community with the medical and wellness professionals that are leading the integrative health movement and advancing functional and integrative medicine within the Delaware Valley.
Upcoming Delaware Valley Functional Forum Meetup events include a November presentation by Dr. Daila Pravs of Montgomery Integrative Health Group, in Wyndmoor, on digestive and gut health, sponsored by Spectracell.
“These programs offer the perfect opportunity for functional and integrative healthcare professionals to learn, network and build relationships with others currently working in or wanting to migrate into the field,” says Karen Meshkov, publisher and owner of Natural Awakenings of Bucks and Montgomery counties. “We also hope to raise the profile of functional medicine and bring attention to the movement that is growing in our area.”
The Delaware Valley chapter of the Functional Forum is coordinated by Meshkov, Kathy Fennelly of Healing Touch by Kathy and Michael Kaye of The Rehab Group of Bucks/Montgomery County. The event is sponsored by Michael Nicolo of Metagenics.
