Take your place as a Nutrition & Wellness Faculty Member!

Nutrition & Wellness Faculty discussions will focus on topics about which members are passionate – including products, techniques, and opportunities. Members can learn from the experiences of others — what works, and what doesn’t.

Date:  Tuesday, February 13, 2024
Time:  2:00 PM EST / 1:00 PM CST / 12 NOON MST / 11:00 AM PST

The Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM) describes functional medicine “as a catalyst in the transformation of healthcare, functional medicine takes a comprehensive approach to prevention, health, and well-being; treats root causes of disease; and restores healthy function through a personalized patient  experience — all while being a vital partner to conventional medicine.”

  • Are you interested in the world of Functional Medicine within the pharmacy profession?
  • Do you know where to start?

We will be discussing the different pathways and popular functional medicine training programs and how they compare.

24/7 Online Community Exclusively for the Nutrition & Wellness Faculty

In addition, members of the Nutrition & Wellness Faculty will have exclusive access to an online community to discuss, share, and give their views on micronutrients, deficiencies, products and supplements, interactions, testing, patient assessment, forms, software and apps, promotions, consultations, functional medicine, and much more.

Why faculties?

One of the College’s strengths is the sharing of ideas – which historically has been accomplished through in-person meetings. ACA is augmenting these meetings with faculties that will assemble using digital technology – including Zoom, email, and an exclusive online community. Faculty involvement is intended to facilitate peer-to-peer networking and relationship building.

Your participation is a no-cost ACA membership benefit available to any individual member. In addition to ACA’s Nutrition & Wellness Faculty and Compounding Faculty, we have a third future faculty in development, which is the Practice Entrepreneurship Faculty.
