“Thank you for the opportunity to get involved in nutrigenomics. Amanda, Bobbi and Joe have presented with such enthusiasm and passion that I went away feeling like I had just experienced the most valuable workshop in my career as a teacher and fitness professional. I’ve ordered my Ultimate panel and I have ordered my husbands as well. I am reading on everything I can find about nutrigenomics and am hungry for more.”

~ Jan Babington, PhD

“As we all know, the field of nutrigenomics has exploded. I feel I can probably speak for many that the science is comprehensive and it is imperative we find credible lab companies and practitioners who can help us translate this material so we can use it effectively to help our clients in practice. I had struggled to understand and interpret results, so I searched out the market for webinars, courses, and those who are credible to learn from. I enjoyed the webinars by Dr. Kline, Dr. Veltmann and Amanda Archibald. I found that Dr. Veltmann has a knack for making this comprehensive material so much more clear.”

~ Keri Lynn MacElhinney, RD, CDN, CLT

“Thank you for your dedication to the Genomic subject. There are few classes or online learning opportunities offered to the professional. Most of what I know comes from A4M conferences. I am very impressed with the course. It was well-presented, well-organized, and relevant; I will definitely be making changes to use genomics in my practice.”

~ Donald Vradenburg, DC

BEYOND THE TECHNOLOGY

While genomics technologies provide the data, it is the interpretation and clinical application that makes our genomic testing so powerful. The patient is always front and center – for you, and for us.

Learn about the science and clinical applications of genomics, and how to go deeper into what makes each patient unique, along with tools to help you create a successful genomic medicine or nutrition practice.

Meet the Instructors

Genoma International’s instructors are accomplished professionals with more than 80 years combined experience. Their in-depth clinical expertise includes nutrition science, traditional and functional medicine, culinary genomics, and genomic medicine.

Leverage their knowledge and experience to shorten your learning curve, and successfully integrate personalized genomic medicine and nutrition into your private practice.

Dr. Veltmann is a scientist, healthcare practitioner, author, teacher and expert in genomic testing and interpretation.

With over 40 years of experience as a researcher and practitioner, Dr. Veltmann has made a career of translating lab results into practical clinical applications for patients around the world. He achieved international recognition as the pioneering developer of the GENESIS Matrix™ holistic health model that explored the interactions between seven key variables to create better preventive health strategies.

In 2001, Dr. Veltmann added genomic testing and interpretation to the GENESIS Matrix™ in an effort to uncover predispositions for chronic diseases and cancer, long before symptoms appear. His approach led to improved outcomes for both patients in his private practice as well as the participants in a flagship corporate wellness program. The program was able to realize 20% annual cost savings over a period of four years, while delivering improved health and disease prevention for its members.

As a nutritional biochemist, Dr. Veltmann developed and taught nutrition science programs to graduate students while an Assistant Professor at Texas A&M University. Author of more than 30 published scientific papers that have been cited more than 1800 times, Dr. Veltmann continues to apply this scientific rigor to genomic medicine. He regularly presents informative webinars educating healthcare professionals and the general public. He has been the keynote speaker at numerous conferences on nutrition, integrative health, and genomics. Dr. Veltmann is co-author of the Blood Type Cookbook: Easy, Healthy and Delicious Recipes for the Whole Family, and Genome-Guided Metabolic Therapies in Metabolic Therapies in Orthopedics by CRC Press.

Dr. Veltmann was also a pioneer in the development of functional medicine, contributing his deep scientific knowledge and clinical experience to the incubator group that eventually became the Institute for Functional Medicine. He currently maintains a clinical consulting practice with Dr. Kline.

Dr. Kline is a board-certified Ob-Gyn physician, author, educator, genomics expert and entrepreneur who is passionate about helping others harness the power of DNA-directed healthcare.

Dr. Kline graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Connecticut. She received her medical degree from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine under an Air Force Health Professions scholarship, and completed her Obstetrics and Gynecology residency at Wright Patterson AFB earning multiple honors. After 10 years serving in the Air Force, she became a partner in a large private practice, managing more than 40 employees in addition to providing Ob-Gyn care.

Feeling limited by conventional medicine, she transformed her traditional practice by embracing innovative scientific advancements and holistic elements. As she incorporated genomics into her practice, she experienced first-hand the power of an integrated DNA-directed approach. She became an advocate for personalized genomic medicine, working to extend this model beyond her private practice.

But having good clinical skills is not a guarantee of success for innovative clinicians, and she wanted to use her experience to help others. She co-founded the Connecticut Chapter of the Holistic Chamber of Commerce to share her knowledge and that of other experts in the community, empowering practitioners with valuable practice-building tools, networking and resources.

As an Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, Dr. Kline created and taught courses on functional and genomic medicine. She was an integral member of a group of clinicians selected to create the didactic functional medicine curriculum for a new Family Practice Residency Program—the first such program in the country. Dr. Kline was also a Guest Faculty Instructor for The Graduate Institute, where she developed and delivered the 3-day course on functional and genomic medicine within a holistic health model. She continues to teach about the power of genomic medicine through writing, webinars, conferences and workshops for both the general public and healthcare professionals. Dr. Kline is co-author of the Blood Type Cookbook: Easy, Healthy and Delicious Recipes for the Whole Family, and Genome-Guided Metabolic Therapies in Metabolic Therapies in Orthopedics by CRC Press. She maintains a clinical consulting practice with Dr. Veltmann.

Widely recognized for her trailblazing work as a culinary nutritionist and dietitian, Amanda has a longstanding commitment to redefining the food, nutrition and cooking education footprint in ways that make them understandable, meaningful and fundamentally achievable.

Since founding Field To Plate in 2003, she has been lecturing, teaching, counseling, and producing state-of-the-art experiential food and nutrition learning experiences for consumers and healthcare professionals. Her work has been showcased in more than 30 states, 100 U.S. cities, and 7 countries. She has also produced four international food policy-focused events. In 2013, Amanda designed and implemented Hearth to Health, the only “Food As Medicine” teaching and counseling curriculum for nutrition and health professionals.

Her cutting edge work in Culinary Genomics, unveiled in 2015, has created a new frontier, uniting the fields of Genomic Medicine with the Culinary Arts. Through this work, Amanda is placing food, chefs and the kitchen at the epicenter of healing and igniting a new nutrition conversation for the world.

Amanda teaches culinary genomics in the Genomic Medicine & Culinary Genomics Training Program, and brings her expertise and vision to advise Genoma International’s courses and collaborate on numerous projects that advance nutrigenomics and how to translate that into meals on the plate.
