NDs Crossing the Finish Line

If you’re anything like me, you find this time of year a little…cluttered. The fall and winter months are filled with fun and family, rain and snowstorms, gift-giving and thanksgiving, and yes — a fair amount of overindulgence! While making it through December can feel like running the 100-meter dash, the best part always comes at the finish line. Read on to learn about some of my naturopathic medical colleagues who have recently crossed “finish lines” of their own.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently awarded National College of Natural Medicine’s (NCNM’s) Helfgott Research Institute a four-year, $864,000 grant to continue its Research in Complementary and Alternative Medicine Program (R-CAMP).
