Ryan Bradley, ND, MPH, director of NUNM’s Helfgott Research Institute and an associate professor in the School of Research & Graduate Studies, has been accepted into the world’s first naturopathy research leadership program. Designed and run by the Australian Research Centre in Complementary and Integrative Medicine (ARCCIM) at University of Technology Sydney, the program aims to significantly increase critical research activity and capacity in the naturopathy field. The program recently attracted 42 applicants from seven countries. Dr. Bradley joins 10 other program Fellows selected for the program, including just one other American.
“While there are pockets of excellence in naturopathy research across the world, the field remains underdeveloped both in terms of networks and critical mass—our program is a great opportunity to help ensure growth and rigor in naturopathy research, not just for now but with a view to establishing a sustainable high-quality research culture,” said Professor Jon Adams, ARCCIM director and architect of the leadership programs.
