Jill Carnahan M.D. Bio:
Dr. Carnahan completed her residency at the University of Illinois Program in Family Medicine at Methodist Medical Center.
In 2006 she was voted by faculty to receive the
Resident Teacher of the Year award and elected to Central Illinois 40 Leaders Under 40.
She received her medical degree from Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine in Chicago and her Bachelor of Science degree in Bio-Engineering at the University of Illinois
in Champaign-Urbana. She was dually board-certified in Family Medicine (ABFM) from 2006 to 2016 and in Integrative Holistic Medicine (ABIHM) 2015 to present.
Dr. Jill was also part of the first 100+ health-care practitioners to be certified in Functional Medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFMCP). Following residency
Dr. Carnahan’s vision for health and healing resulted in the creation of Methodist Center for Integrative Medicine in Peoria, IL where she served as the Medical Director for 4 years.
In 2010, she founded Flatiron Functional Medicine in Boulder, Colorado where she has a widely sought after medical clinic with a broad range of service including medical and
nutritional consultations, and massage therapy.
Dr. Jill is a 17-year survivor of breast cancer and Crohn’s disease and passionate about teaching patients how to “live well” and thrive in the midst of complex and chronic illness.
She is also committed to teaching other physicians how to address underlying cause of illness rather than just treating symptoms through the principles of functional medicine.
She is a prolific writer, speaker, and loves to infuse others with her passion for health and healing!
