About the Hosts

Matt Conforti-


"I have always been a firm believer in the power of the body to heal itself if given the proper resources. When exposed to my own health challenges during the early years of my undergrad program, this belief guided me towards functional medicine. After being circulated throughout the medical system with no progression I pursued my own treatment in the form of herbs, enzymes, and lifestyle changes with success. This introduction to alternative forms of medicine has guided me to where I am today as an Account Executive for Ortho Molecular Products servicing Chicago and the Northwest Suburbs. After six years servicing functional medicine clinicians I believe functional medicine approaches need to be driven to the masses. The Chicago Functional Forum is designed to introduce you to like minded practitioners across the Chicagoland area so you can expand your network and learn about the most efficacious ways to support patient care. I look forward to meeting you, hearing your story, and working together to transform the practice of medicine."

“I have always been driven to nature and found being surrounded by the outdoors truly brings a sense of healing into my life. Prone to physical ailments at a young age, I was led to a career in musculoskeletal health. I have worked in multiple healthcare settings (hospital/acute care, out-patient, home visits, private practice, etc...) and found our widely adopted vision of healthcare often leans towards “cookie cutter” approaches. I knew there had to be more and other like-minded individuals out there. When I found Ortho Molecular Products in 2018 everything changed for the better. The world of Functional Medicine has truly opened my eyes to what “healthcare” should be and I vow everyday to help transform it. 


I currently serve as the Account Executive for the western suburbs of Chicago and northwest cities. I come from a science family with a physicist father and microbiologist mother. My education and work experience stems from biology, psychology, and musculoskeletal health. Ortho Molecular has given me the tools and education to help providers improve clinical outcomes and practice profitability. Please join our community and together we can transform the practice of medicine together!"
