Hormone Advanced Practice Module (APM): Re-establishing Hormonal Balance in the Hypothalamic, Pituitary, Adrenal, Thyroid and Gonadal Axis is organized by Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) and will be held from Jul 12 - 14, 2018 at The Nines, Portland, Oregon, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 18 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
This Conference will clarify exactly how to approach hormonal dysregulation, with discussions on the most important evaluations to make and integrative treatment approaches to apply. We will help you analyze the controversies and provide you with tools that you can use immediately in your practice.
Our expert faculty team will supply you with the foundational background, insight, and in-depth clinical thinking to confidently assess and treat patients who present with hormonal dysfunction. This program will provide a unique, experiential, case-based, clinically practical experience from which you will acquire the tools you need to apply a comprehensive Functional Medicine approach to hormone dysfunction in your patients.
