IGNITE Conference 2015: The Business of Better Medicine
November 13-15, 2015, Omni La Costa Resort & Spa, San Diego, CA
Manchester, NH, April 1, 2015 – Emerson Ecologics is excited to announce its first annual conference, IGNITE: The Business of Better Medicine. The conference will provide integrative healthcare practitioners with the necessary business knowledge to develop a thriving and fulfilling practice.
Scheduled for November 13-15, 2015 at the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa, the conference will be a one-of-a-kind, “get it done” event, where attendees can expect to accomplish key projects and leave with an action plan in hand. Highlights of the event include keynote presentations from Jeffrey S. Bland, PhD, FACN, CNS and Tieraona Low Dog, M.D., as well as hands-on workshops led by industry experts.
The conference workshops are designed to address key business challenges related to clinic operations, sales and marketing and patient compliance, with a focus on providing valuable and actionable takeaways. In addition, representatives from Emerson’s most trusted professional brands will be onsite, guaranteeing that attendees walk away with a broad community of supportive peers, partners and experts.
“Most practitioners, including myself, have struggled to balance their passion for patient care with the stress of building a business,” said Dr. Jaclyn Chasse, Medical Director for Emerson Ecologics. “I am so excited to be working with Emerson to deliver the business knowledge not taught in medical school, but equally important to creating a successful practice.”
The conference will build on the success of Emerson’s IGNITE series of practice growth webinars and events. Designed to deliver the personalized business advice that practitioners have come to expect from IGNITE, the event will feature an expanded range of topics and experts, including:
- Mastering Sales & Marketing – Miriam Zacharias, MS, LPSN
- Enhancing Patient Compliance – Dan Kalish, DC
- Leveraging Technology – Peter Osborne, DC, CCN
- Optimizing Clinic Operations – Leandra Fishman, Practice Management Consultant
“Often, practitioners don’t realize how closely their clinical success is tied to the success of their business,” said Dr. Dan Kalish, founder of the Kalish Institute and Method, a web-based Functional Medicine training and mentorship program founded on over 20 years of positive clinical results. “The heart of building a client base and thriving referral network revolves around the relationships you develop with your patients, as well as the communication skills required to provide them with an optimal treatment plan and health outcome.”
“At Emerson, we are passionate about advancing integrative medicine, and we know that the clinical and business success of our practitioners is vital to accomplish this,” added Dr. Chasse. “We are thrilled to launch this transformative conference to help our customers succeed and reach more patients.”
