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!
