In addition to her extensive experience as a natural medicine clinician and educator, Dr. Low Dog has been involved in national health policy and regulatory issues for more than a decade.

Currently, Dr. Low Dog serves as the chief medical officer for Weil Lifestyle, and is the fellowship director for the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, founded by Dr. Andrew Weil.
"We are honored to bring Dr. Low Dog to Expo East as part of our ongoing effort to connect natural products retailers with leading experts in our industry," says Robert U. Craven, CEO of MegaFood.
Dr. Low Dog's new book is geared towards women as a guide for health and healing through all seasons of life. She will discuss how to apply simple, integrative approaches to health that help to build a woman’s resilience and contentment with life.
"Both of my grandmothers were strong, independent role models. They have had a tremendous impact in my life and opened my eyes to how our everyday choices impact our health. From the food, vitamins and herbs that we consume to the music we listen to and words that we speak, everything affects our sense of well being," says Dr. Low Dog. "My hope is that this book unlocks an abundance of health for women of all ages."
