Jeffrey Bland PhD, FACN, FACB, CNS

This presentation will focus on the revolution that is occurring in genomics and biometrics and how this supports the delivery of Functional Medicine. Specific examples of how new technologies are creating improvements in personalization of health care will be discussed. This presentation will highlight the merits and limitations of wearable biometric devices in assessing function, and how this information can be incorporated into both patient assessment and supporting positive behavior changes in the delivery of Functional Medicine. The use of genomic and biometric information will be applied in the discussion of specific clinical examples of the successful application of Functional Medicine in the management of chronic disease.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Participants will be able to discuss genomic and biometric tools that allow for personalization of the Functional Medicine program.
  2. Participants will be able to apply these assessment tools in the management of metabolic disorders.
  3. Participants will be able to identify the strengths and limitations of these tools in the creation of successful health behavior change in their patients.
