** SOLD OUT – JOIN THE WAITLIST HERE**
In 2016/7, the Evolution of Medicine, hosted half a dozen Functional Forum events at the Royal Society of Medicine and we are excited to create a permanent community in London for all practitioners, innovators and clinicians working to create robust health in their patients.

Kirkland Newman – Mindhealth 360
Kirkland Newman is an anglo-american journalist and philanthropist. She is the Founder and Editor of MindHealth360, a free, global resource for integrative mental health and functional medicine psychiatry, and the Host of The MindHealth360 Show.
She created MindHealth360 after her own postpartum depression to address the epidemic of mental health issues and the lack of sustainable, root-cause based solutions for mental health in mainstream medicine. She launched the MindHealth360 Show in 2020 to give a voice to the leading practitioners of integrative mental health from around the world.
Kirkland believes that a revolution in mental health diagnosis and treatment is necessary to tackle the epidemic of mental health issues and the lack of effective solutions in conventional mental health treatment. She believes that integrative mental health and functional medicine psychiatry offer sustainable solutions to those suffering from mental health issues, their friends, families and health practitioners, and seeks to raise awareness and provide resources around integrative mental health through the popular MindHealth360 website and The MindHealth360 Show.
She has worked for Rockefeller Brothers Fund and Ogilvy & Mather in New York, and for Musiclegal and The Prince’s Trust in London. She is a Co-Founder and Trustee of The Horizon Foundation which provides support for young refugees from the Middle East and Asia.
Kirkland has a first class BA/MA from Oxford University in Modern Languages and Literature (French and Spanish); an MSc from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) in European Studies; and an MA from The School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in Near and Middle Eastern Studies. Her dissertation “The Battle for Victimhood, Roles and Narratives of Suffering in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict” was published in “Narrating Conflict in the Middle East: Discourse, Image and Communications Practices in Lebanon and Palestine”.
On Wednesday, June 28th, we will welcome the practitioner community back together alongside guest speakers from America in town for a large integrative medicine conference.
As well as Evolution of Medicine Founder James Maskell and Kirkland Newman, we welcome Dr Zach Bush and Dr Lara Salyer from the States, and local NHS GP and Clinical Innovator Dr Ayan Panja.
Dr Zach Bush is a triple board certified physician with interests as wide as regenerative agriculture and the microbiome. He will be sharing the critical role of reconnection to nature in the future of medicine.
Dr Lara Salyer is a family physician, who, having left conventional care and built an innovative, membership based functional medicine clinic, now teaches physicians around the world how reconnecting to their creativity can reduce burnout and improve patient outcomes.
Dr Ayan Panja is one of the cofounders of Prescribing Lifestyle Medicine, is an NHS GP and recently wrote a book called the Health Fix. He also hosts a podcast and is a leading educator.
We look forward to welcoming the London Functional Medicine community to reconnect and chart a path forward for medicine.
