SPEAKERS & PANELISTS
Dr. Barbara Jean Dyble, MD, CCFP, FCFP
An interest in Medical Genetics led Barbara to the University of Calgary where she received her MD in 1985 followed by Family Practice residency at The University of British Columbia. Determined to find creative and individualized solutions for her most challenging patients, in 2005 Dr. Dyble began training in Functional Medicine – an integrative approach to explore and modify underlying genetic/epigenetic factors (e.g. lifestyle, nutritional, biochemical, spiritual). Following this she trained in Frequency Specific Microcurrent, a bioenergetic, evidence-based therapy.
Dr. Barbara Dyble began her medical career as a medical health officer serving the remarkable residents of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside before moving to Victoria BC, where she established a family practice, co-founded and directed the region’s Sexual Assault Response Team and was medical coordinator of several long term care facilities. From 1998 until retirement from the University of Victoria in 2014, Dr. Dyble cared for students and their families at the University Health Services. Her work included teaching Nurse Practitioner students and developing a Functional Medicine Program for students with complex chronic illness. As a member of CADDRA (Canadian ADHD Resource Alliance) Dr. Dyble served on the committee to develop physician training programs for the assessment and treatment of ADHD. She also provided consulting services to a medical technology company looking to bring cutting edge technologies to local medical clinics.
Dr. Dyble was an early adopter of telehealth technology and currently provides online video consultations for patients throughout the Province with complex chronic illness.
