Functional Medicine: A to Zinc

Functional medicine seeks to get to the root cause of a problem rather than solely addressing the problem's symptoms. The practice of functional medicine can evaluate endocrine diseases, sleep management, weight management, stress and more. There are multiple avenues and opportunities for incorporating facets of functional medicine into your practice.

Learn about the fundamentals of functional medicine as our presenters introduce you to the concept of functional medicine, explain success with a weight management program and discuss the role that scheduling appointments has had for offering these unique services in their pharmacy.
