Our Member's Stories

“NCIMS lets me be part of a group that cares”

NCIMS lets me be part of a group that cares about the patient, treats each patient as a unique individual, and will utilize functional/ integrative medicine and techniques to help our patients. Membership gives me support from like-minded colleagues. This organization fights for us to have the freedom to treat patients naturally and effectively.

“I especially enjoy the annual conferences”

I especially enjoy the annual conferences in Asheville, and as a member, I love having many opportunities to learn as well as network through NCIMS events.

- Karen Saylor, FNP

“The best part of being a member are the extended”

The best part of being a member are the extended resources from multiple specialties, as many of the speakers at the conferences become some of these resources. The experts that present at the conferences are the best in the Integrative space. Holding these conferences in North Carolina makes it very convenient to attend the events locally.
