Dear Friends, Colleagues, and Community Members, 

As I look back over my annual messages of gratitude, there are nuances unique to each year and yet the main theme remains a constant: my deep gratitude for the work we are doing together in service to the widespread adoption of functional medicine and the transformation of healthcare for all.     

As we enter the holiday season, please accept a heartfelt thank you to each of you, the practitioners and frontline healthcare professionals serving patients across diverse communities around the globe. Without your commitment and heavy lifting, fulfilling our mission simply isn’t possible. As the daughter of a clinician, I’ve witnessed the heavy weight and toll of a caregiver’s profession. With this selfless work comes great stress and strain. In support of your commitment, I hope you will find a few moments in the coming weeks to rest, rejuvenate, and reflect on your service and utilize the resources below to support you in this time.   

On behalf of the Governing Board of Directors, IFM’s Executive Leadership, and the IFM Team, thank you, and we look forward to supporting you and serving with you in 2024.
