James Maskell is a former economist turned serial entrepreneur who founded Functional Forum, the world’s largest integrative medicine conference with record-setting participation online and growing physician communities around the world. He’s also the founder of the Evolution of Medicine, a community e-commerce platform, 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. An in-demand speaker, James lectures internationally and has been featured on TEDMED, HuffPost Live, TEDx, and more. He has also contributed to HuffPost, KevinMD, The Doctor Blog, and MindBodyGreen. He serves on the faculty of George Washington University’s Metabolic Medicine Institute and speaks regularly on the integrative medicine conference circuit.

James has spent the past decade sparking debate and encouraging a shift away from conventional western medicine and toward a wellness-centered, functional medicine model — starting with the doctors themselves.
