LOCAL CLINICIAN RECOGNIZED AS a graduate of The Institute for Functional Medicine’s Certification Program
Dr. Scott J. Banks, DC, IFMCP, PC Joins Elite Group of IFM Certified Practitioners
Federal Way, WA; February 3, 2014 – Of total healthcare costs in the United States, more than 75% is due to chronic conditions.
The key to reversing the rapidly spreading epidemic of chronic disease is to address the underlying causes and solutions for chronic disease, which are primarily driven by the lifelong, daily interaction among an individual’s genetics, environment, and lifestyle choices. Functional medicine not only incorporates the latest in genetic science and systems biology, but it also enables health care practitioners to practice proactive, predictive, personalized medicine while empowering patients to take an active role in their own health.
The Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), the global leader in providing clinical education in functional medicine, is pleased to announce Dr. Scott J. Banks as a member of the first graduating class of certified functional medicine practitioners.
