Faculty—James Maskell

James Maskell is the creator of Functional Forum, the world’s largest integrative medicine conference. He lectures and hosts internationally, and has been featured on TEDMED, Huffpost Live, TEDx and more, and is a contributor to Huffington Post, KevinMD, thedoctorblog and MindBodyGreen. He serves on the faculty of George Washington University’s Metabolic Medicine Institute and has lectured to doctors on three continents.

With the soul of an advocate and the mind of an entrepreneur, James Maskell has spent the past the past decade sparking debate, shifting paradigms, and working to accelerate the evolution of medicine—starting with the doctors themselves. By empowering conventionally trained doctors, James is encouraging a seismic shift away from an over dependence on western medicine and toward a wellness-centered, functional medicine model, creating not just happier patients—but happier doctors, too. To that end, he created the Evolution of Medicine, a community e-commerce service which provides highly curated and customized resources, tools, products, and services, making it easier and more affordable for conventional doctors to embark on a new way of managing healthcare.

His background in health economics and business have uniquely positioned him to help facilitate and drive this movement toward a more sustainable medicine model. He brings to bear his experience with health providers, doctors chief among them, plus an ease and facility with digital marketing, entrepreneurship, business solutions, and a deep understanding of the needs of clinics, providers, patients, and finances. He knows how to run a successful practice—and can give doctors the tools they need to do the same, outside of the restrictive and severely limiting current model.
