• Continually improve Metagenics products, protocols and programs;
• Improve the health and wellbeing of Metagenics staff; and

Through MetaClinic we will continue to set tomorrows standards in product innovation, service and clinical education, to deliver exceptional health solutions for our Practitioners. In doing so, it is our hope that our Practitioners will continue to help more people ‘live happier, healthier lives’.
In January 2019, Metagenics, Inc., opened The Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Center (PLMC), a clinical research laboratory and patient clinic in Gig Harbor, Washington.
The Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Center is the shared vision of Brent Eck (CEO of Metagenics), Dr. Jeffrey Bland (President of Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Institute) and Dr. Lamb (Owner of the PLMC).
The PLMC serves as a state-of-the-art medical clinic, staffed with medical doctors, PhD nutritionists, lifestyle educators, and medical assistants, serving the local community with a personalized lifestyle medicine approach, combining traditional allopathic medicine coupled with the best of Integrative and Functional Medicine. In addition, the PLMC serves as a key partner with the Metagenics R&D team, trialing select new products to understand efficacy and utility in clinical practice, while modeling the latest technologies for optimal clinical service and operations.
The Centre is also integral to Metagenics continuing to deliver quality, science-based nutritional supplements, medical foods, and lifestyle programs as well as providing healthcare practitioners globally with advanced tools to improve patient outcomes.
