After a successful inaugural conference dedicated to providing integrative health care practitioners with the business knowledge needed to run a thriving practice, the Emerson Ecologics (Manchester NH) team is excited to announce the full, robust program for their 2016 IGNITE Conference.
The event will provide actionable business insights from industry experts and most importantly, the tools needed for practitioners to implement the strategies learned when they return to their practice. Noteworthy features for 2016 include:

- Updated program format with four comprehensive tracks based on top practitioner challenges. Each track includes three breakout sessions and one, two-hour hands-on workshop, providing dedicated time with experts to get started on key action steps.
- Targeted talks that will address hot button topics including financial planning, managing complex patients, building a cash-based practice and more.
- Increased peer-to-peer networking time during networking roundtables and exciting social events.
Additionally, attendees can expect to connect with industry partners including the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) who will be presenting results from a new survey on practitioner challenges, opportunities and trends and TAP Integrative who will be hosting a special dinner event and expert panel.
“We continue to hear from customers and industry leaders alike that business education is the key to pushing integrative medicine over the tipping point to have it recognized as the standard of healthcare in our country,” said Jaclyn Chasse, ND, vice president of scientific and regulatory affairs at Emerson Ecologics. “We are beyond excited to be playing a role in education that moves integrative medicine forward.”
The event will be taking place just outside of Albuquerque, NM at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya on October 13-16, 2016.
