1090. A Day in the Life: What's It Really Like to Be a Nutrition and Wellness Doctor?
Dr. Ann Kulze
“While I had always included diet and nutrition as a vital part of my clinical practice, along with the more traditional medical procedures, as I continued to research and study the science that increasingly reported that the majority of the chronic conditions people in modern Western cultures face are induced predominately by diet and lifestyle choices, I began to question whether I was making my greatest contribution to my patients. The catalyst that gave me the courage to walk away from my successful clinical practice was reading Doctor Walter Willett’s groundbreaking book: Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy: The Harvard Medical School Guide to Healthy Eating, which was rooted in studies that tracked the health of dieters over twenty years. The work I do is fascinating and gratifying in every way.”
Dr. Ann Kulze has distinguished herself as a one-of-a-kind, “real world” nutrition and wellness expert.
