Personal and Employee Health: Taking Charge in an Era of Uncertain Healthcare
Concerned about the changes that have occurred in healthcare over the past several years? Disillusioned with high deductibles, reduced services and poor results? Come join Lynn Kettell-Slifer, ARNP, and owner of Health Partners LLC as she shares alarming statistics and important information about the future of healthcare. Lynn will discuss personal and business strategies for improving and maintaining health through a Functional Medicine approach. Functional Medicine goes beyond the traditional primary care focus on simply treating symptoms and instead seeks to discover and treat the actual cause of illness through a comprehensive, individualized evaluation of the major components of health. This personalized approach is an integral part of medical diagnosis and treatment worldwide, and is practiced at a large and growing number of research-based hospital systems including Cleveland Clinic, Duke University, and Yale University.
