Lauren Castle


Hi there!
I’m Lauren and I’m the founder of the Functional Medicine Pharmacists Alliance and creator of FMPhA.org. What started as a small Facebook group for FM pharmacists to keep in touch quickly grew to the largest online network of Functional Medicine Pharmacists, and we needed a home! FMPhA was created in 2017 as a way to bring pharmacists together who had an interest in functional medicine. I wanted it to be more than just another pharmacists association. It needed to be a movement, a coalition, an alliance: “An alliance is a relationship among people, groups, or states that have joined together for mutual benefit or to achieve some common purpose, whether or not explicit agreement has been worked out among them. Members of an alliance are called allies.”

I hope that you will sign up for the newsletter and like us on Facebook to stay in the know about FMPhA developments, as well as relevant Functional Medicine and Pharmacy news!

In Health,
Lauren Castle, PharmD
