The 2020 IFM Annual International Conference, Advancements in Clinical Research and Innovative Practices in Functional Medicine, will explore several areas of new medical research and the clinical opportunities that this research provides. AIC 2020 presents a carefully curated slate of the latest advances in research from across all of medicine and will also distill these findings into clinically actionable takeaways that practitioners can use in practice.
Functional Medicine practitioners are known for applying innovative medical research in their clinical practices as soon as it becomes available. This combination of scientific rigor with patient-centered pragmatism can help patients achieve amazing outcomes that would not be possible without such advancements. At AIC 2020, expert speakers will present new medical research from the forefront of medicine and IFM will help you learn how to leverage these findings into safe and effective treatments for the patients who need it most.
