Nacogdoches First Functional Forum Meet-up: Evolution of Pediatrics

Calling all East Texas Health Practitioners and Students!

We are excited to announce East Texas first Functional Health Meet-up.

January 22, 2018 6:30-8:30 PM SFA Education Annex Building Room 126

This meet-up is an opportunity to gather with local like-minded health professionals to discover the latest clinical research, participate in engaging conversations, and for practitioners to develop their referral networks – it takes a village to raise a child and it takes a tribe to turn our runaway healthcare system around – be a part of that tribe!

Please help us spread the word and share this invite with others! Looking forward to seeing you there 

For our first Functional Forum of 2018, we are thrilled to present: The Evolution of Pediatrics
Of all the medical specialties, Pediatrics has been the slowest to evolve due to its traditionally conservative viewpoint. However, with massive rise in chronic pediatric illness, more and more pediatricians (and parents) are looking for answers outside of the conventional box.

In this episode, we traveled across the country to meet with pediatric practices and practitioners on the cutting edge of this medical evolution.

First, we interview two sister pediatricians, Dr. Nicole Shorrock, who was featured on the June Forum: “Evolution of Neurology” and her sister, Dr. Katie Long, who practice together as part of a hospital-based practice near Sacramento, California. They share how they have been able to practice functionally inside a conventional medical system.

Next, we met with Dr. Sheila Kilbane, an integrative pediatrician based on Charlotte, North Carolina who was featured on last summer’s “Journey to 100”. Dr. Kilbane showed us around her practice and talked about antibiotics, gut heath and chronic illness.

Also featured is Kimberly Shirk, a Physician’s Assistant trained in functional and integrative medicine and member of our Practice Accelerator and Membership Practice Builder programs from Columbia, South Carolina. Kimberly has built an interdisciplinary pediatric clinic, including midwifery and functional medicine, using a low-cost direct primary care model — an evolution in the business model of integrative pediatrics!
