fullsizerender-1The Institute for Functional Medicine kicks of its annual conference this week from June 1-3 at the JW Marriott in Los Angeles, California.

Attendees at IFM’s 2017 Annual International Conference will be presented with the most recent scientific evidence on the ways in which neuroplasticity can be harnessed and optimized to prevent and treat neurodegenerative diseases, brain injury, stroke, and mental disorders. This will result in clinically actionable steps clinicians can take with patients who have these conditions as well as for those who are concerned about or at risk for neurodegeneration. The conference will also discuss the factors that promote neurodegeneration and present clinical steps to help patients avoid, minimize, or mitigate their impact.

Be sure to stop by our booth (Booth No. 132), or catch up with IntegrativePractitioner.com editor, Katy Rushlau, who will be reporting live from the conference and show floor.

Interested readers and attendees can check back on this page for any and all IntegrativePractitioner.com coverage to come out of the event. We will update it as new coverage comes in. Follow Integrative Practitioner (@iPractitioner) for any quick coverage news.
