Join the Naturopathic Medical Student Association for a presentation on helping children with Autism Spectrum Disorder through nutrition on Thursday, June 5th, in Room D140 at noon.
Speaker Julie Matthews, certified nutrition consultant, has had over 12 years of successful results in reducing the symptoms of autism through nutritional intervention. Her website, www.nourishinghope.com, provides a wealth of resources for families coping with autism, including diet change suggestions, a free e-book, monthly support club, blog and helpful tips for parents and health providers.

NUHS student Kate Woodall says: "I sought out Julie because I saw her speak at the Integrative Medicine and Mental Health conference in Chicago last September. She happily agreed to hold a webinar for our students, and is an amazing speaker who has had incredible success helping children with ASD.
"As the social justice chair on the NMSA board, I felt it was important that our students learn about the options that are out there for the treatment of these children. They are so often judged, stereotyped and left with little relief using conventional approaches," says Kate.
