Dr. Mark Rosenbloom is the Chief Medical Officer at LIFEFORCE Medical Institute. He began his training at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, completed his MBA degree at Stanford University in California, and then fulfilled his dream to become a physician at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine where he was the top student after 2 years and won the Dean’s AOA Research Award and the prestigious Sigmund Winton Award in Biochemistry. Thereafter, he went on to practice emergency medicine and became an Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine in the Department of Medicine at Northwestern University. In 1993 Dr. Rosenbloom founded PEPID LLC, which is now recognized as the premier point of care medical/drug information and decision support software. PEPID is now used by hundreds of thousands of physicians around the world affecting millions of patient encounters yearly.
In 1994 Dr. Rosenbloom founded the Unicorn Children’s Foundation shortly after his three-year-old son was diagnosed with autism. Up until that time, he had been told by numerous professionals that his son, who was not yet speaking, would "grow out of it." But he didn't. Frustration with the medical community misdiagnoses, then delaying the correct diagnosis and an understanding of how much misinformation was present regarding autism, how many practitioners and organizations were profiting at the expense of parents and their children, and how much the entire field could benefit from clear, concise, unbiased information were the inspirations driving him to start this new charity.
Dr. Rosenbloom initially funded the charity by selling unicorn themed calendars through drug stores and supermarkets and this initially raised close to $1 million dollars in the first 4 years. He worked closely with Dr. Stanley Greenspan on a number of groundbreaking initiatives, including starting a journal, sponsoring a yearly conference and creating and disseminating guidelines to all practitioners in the United States working with autism. Dr. Rosenbloom even authored a chapter in this guidelines book. He has remained active in the organization to this day.
Professionally, after successfully practicing emergency medicine for close to 18 years, Dr Rosenbloom found a new calling. In 2009, he trained at the Cenegenics Education and Research Foundation and then founded LIFEFORCE, which focuses on longevity and optimal performance medicine. Interestingly, many of the concepts that he has learned and practices with his patients are also directly relevant to the autistic community (eg genetics, inflammation, exposure to toxins, hormone disruption, nutritional deficiencies, etc)
Dr. Rosenbloom has also been the Editor of “Your Health Magazine” and has been published in print and media on various topics such as age management, low testosterone for men, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, reduction of medical errors, and vitamin toxicity.
Dr. Rosenbloom is passionate about the Unicorn Children’s Foundation and has publicly spoken multiple times regarding autistic-spectrum disorders in children, including TV appearances in Chicago, Miami, Boca Raton and Palm Beach, Florida. Dr. Rosenbloom is also devoted to health and longevity for his patients and himself! Late 2022, he competed in his first desert Spartan race and was one of the top finishers in his age group. Dr. Rosenbloom, by practicing what he preaches, and if scientific advances in this field continue at the current pace, expects to live to be a healthy 150 years old!
