Welcome Dr. Julie Briley, ND To Rouxbe’s Wellness Advisory Board


Portland, OR (August 15, 2014)


Rouxbe is pleased to announce that Dr. Julie Briley, ND has joined the Rouxbe’s Medical and Wellness Board of Advisors.

In an effort to expand the depth and range expertise of the Rouxbe Medical and Wellness Board, Rouxbe is pleased to welcome Dr. Julie Briley, ND as the newest member of this group.

Dr. Julie Briley is a licensed naturopathic primary care physician and co-founder of the Food As Medicine Institute at the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) in Portland, Oregon.

Dr. Briley is dedicated to helping individuals, families and organizations develop healthy relationships with whole foods. She is a faculty member for NCNM’s Master of Science in Nutrition program, and maintains a private practice in Portland where she addresses the underlying cause of disease in patients with acute or chronic health conditions.

The National College of Natural Medicine is the oldest accredited naturopathic medical college in North America and home to many academic programs that align with Rouxbe’s overall approach to health and wellness: attention to whole and unprocessed foods and the importance of vegetables, grains and beans.  Their Food as Medicine Everyday (FAME) Program is now offered to the community at large.

The Food as Medicine Institute was established in 2010 with the creation of the Ending Childhood Obesity (ECO) Project, a community based nutrition education and cooking program offered in low-income areas in Portland, OR. Bob and Charlee Moore of Bob’s Red Mill generously sponsored this project and also funded the creation of the Food as Medicine Everyday series (FAME) and Charlee’s Kitchen, a hands-on teaching kitchen for NCNM students and the community.

 “We are very excited to welcome Dr. Briley to the Rouxbe community. We know her contributions and perspective will add great depth to our work in the health and wellness arena,” said Joe Girard, Rouxbe CEO and co-founder.

  Welcome, Dr. Briley!

Rouxbe Cooks Up Partnership with the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM)


Rouxbe Partners with National College of Natural Medicine to Broaden Wellness Reach & Services

We are cooking up a partnership with the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) and we wanted to share a web-based educational experience with you that you may find useful as you learn to cook. NCNM, the oldest and largest Naturopathic College in the US, is hosting a Food as Medicine Symposium webinar event that is focused on the connections between cooking, eating and wellness.

Since we now have many health professionals among our ranks, many have asked about other opportunities that can support their culinary instruction at Rouxbe. NCNM is offering a unique opportunity via a two-day webinar that reinforces the importance of cooking with real, whole foods. But, it’s not just for professionals – anyone can attend this unique event.

This event is open to the general public, as well as to health professionals, for continuing education. It is part of a larger initiative that NCNM is spearheading, and we think it pairs nicely with work we are doing around wellness at Rouxbe and our commitment to getting people back in the kitchen.
