Throughout the year our two co-Founders, James Maskell and Gabe Hoffman, take the opportunity to share with our community, the “State of the Evolution” address on our Evolution of Medicine Podcast, that gives a run down of the last few months and some of the plans for the months ahead.
Even by our standards, this last 6 months has been incredibly busy, including, but not limited to
In this episode we discuss all of these events, and more, and share our appreciation for our team, our community and give some hints as to our intentions and goals for the year ahead.
Listen in to hear all of the above and more, including some funny stories and key emerging characters in the Evolution of Medicine

One of the basics premises in Functional Medicine is systems biology. This helps providers and patients to look at the body for what it is: a complex, interconnected system. But complex medicine doesn't have to be complicated, and we are excited to feature speakers who make it easy for doctors to understand this transition from reductionism to complexity.
Dr. Bill Sutherland is a fascinating Canadian doctor whose book "Grand Rounds: Healing Wisdom for a Complex World" caught our attention at the Evolution of Medicine. In this podcast he shares with us his incredible journey from jazz to medicine, through family, martial arts, world travel and depression.

Over 70% of medical decisions start with a blood draw, and that makes it arguably the most important factor for the future of precision medicine. But how efficient is lab testing? Especially the use of specialty labs?
Throughout this series, we are looking at health technologies that have the potential to massively increase the efficiency of functional, integrative, and precision medicine.
In this episode we interview Dr. Shaiv Kapadia, a practicing cardiologist and Chief Medical Officer of IGGBO, which has been described as the 'Uber for Phlebotomists'. With one in three blood draws never completed, this technology is helping solve a huge bottleneck in healthcare.

Every practitioner doing integrative, functional, holistic or naturopathic medicine (what we like to call "Root Cause Resolution") make some sort of dietary recommendations for their client as diet is a major cause of chronic disease and a modifiable part of health.
Unlike taking supplements of drugs, food habits go beyond "remembering to take things" but include organization, time management, shopping habits and more. Some providers are using health coaches, but there are emerging technologies that can scale the potential impact of providers at even lower cost.
Enter BodySite and their CEO John Cummings, a technology to empower patients with diet and lifestyle changes between office visits.

Throughout this series we have been looking at a new paradigm of patient compliance, one focused on empowering patients towards their best heath. Technologies are arriving that not only create scale, but also reduce overhead.
One of the biggest truths right now is that the demand for Functional Medicine is out stripping the supply and there are many patients that are not within 25 miles of an effective provider.
Telemedicine is a technology that is changing g the game for Functional practices making it easier for them to serve patients, business and groups. In this podcast we hear from Andy O'Hara, CEO of Chiron telemedicine, and look at the role telemedicine can play in scaling functional medicine.

Earlier in the year we created a series of four podcast document on the key transitions that we see are needed in the paradigm shift medicine is undergoing to get on top of chronic disease.
One of these key transitions is the shift from compliance, a patriarchal concept where the patient plays a passive role in their health, to empowerment, where the patient is an active participant.
Catalyzing this shift are technologies that help to automate and scale the way in which we engage and empower patients. In this first part of the second half of this series we speak to Dr. Priya Kamani and MD turned technologist who is equally passionate about this paradigm shift and has designed a technology to visualize and automate key parts of the functional medicine intake process.

To warm up for next week's Evolution of Medicine Summit, this week on the podcast we connect with Alliance for Natural Health's Executive Director Gretchen DuBeau.
Those people in the USA that choose to live a healthy lifestyle, working actively to prevent and / or reverse chronic disease can sometimes take for granted the freedom to do so. We only have to look at Europe to see that this is not a given, and fortunately we have organizations like ANH working on our behalf to preserve our freedom of health choice.
In order to bring about the changes we would like to see in medicine, freedom of choice is a bedrock, but we need to continue to work together on retaining those freedoms.

As we look forward to the 2015 Evolution of Medicine Summit, we are excited to bring you some of the best presentations from 2014 to whet your appetite.
Dr. Lawrence Palevsky is a board certified pediatrician in NY and has been on the forefront of educating both parents and practitioners about holistic pediatrics. Given that we are in the midst of the most rapid rise in chronic pediatric illness in human history, this couldn't be more timely.
Please enjoy the wisdom of one of our favorite educators as he takes you though the state of play in pediatrics and how we can evolve our understanding of the causes of chronic pediatric illness to prevent and recover children.

One of our major goals at the Evolution of Medicine and the Functional Forum is to help you build a strong community of engaged, healthy patients around your integrative practice. Back in 2013 I wrote an article for NDNR sharing a cutting edge marketing strategy used by Dr. Jeffrey Gladd to get 60 new patients in one night.
Since then, a number of practices have recreated the success of Dr. Gladd, using the power of movies to move prospective patients into their practice. It is only becoming easier and easier to pull off these events, due to technologies like Tugg that make it easy to schedule and market a movie screening.
Later this fall, we hope to inspire 500 practitioners and meetup groups to do a film screening during the same week and create a remarkable moment in this movement. Do you want to be one of those?
The movie we are recommending is "Escape Fire", as it is the film Dr. Gladd used and has been the most consistent movie for converting new patients. In this week's podcast we interview Jillian Burne, one of our most consistent attendees of our NYC Forum, about her experience doing a movie screening this Summer. Although she used a different film, the lessons she learned are invaluable to anyone looking to replicate this system.
Watch this space for the specific week we will be announcing the festival!
