The Portland Tribune: Hooked on Hookworms (and Other Parasites)

Alumni Mark Davis, ND (’11), continues to make waves with innovative healthcare research and therapies in “Hooked on Hookworms.” His work with fecal transplantation is now well accepted by mainstream medicine. Writer Peter Korn asks if patient advocacy can pave the way for hookworms as the next frontier in gut health. President David Schleich says that the internet is enabling patients to play a role in promoting unconventional medical therapies. He adds that licensed NDs are important and necessary to ensure patient safety and the efficacy of approved medical protocols.
