Jeffrey Bland, PhD, the founder of the Institute for Functional Medicine may well be the most important medical/health educator of all time.
Dr. Bland's research, writing, and lecturing have influenced healthcare practitioners of many disciplines around the world for four decades. His creation in 1991 and his ongoing dissemination of the paradigm of Functional Medicine have improved healthcare and saved lives throughout the world.
A Nobel Prize in Medicine in my humble opinion is deserved.
