Meet More Naturopathic Medicine Graduates
National University’s naturopathic medicine graduates are working in a variety of health care venues from hospital residencies to private practice and integrative care clinics. Below are updates on how some of our NDs are defining the future of integrated health care.
Crystal Landers, ND – Self Employed
Crystal Landers, ND, opened her own business in suburban Chicago and was the subject of a feature article in a local health magazine called Natural Awakenings. “I opened right next door to a DC whom I met at NUHS, and am applying the business tools we learned in our program.” Crystal is passionate about moving toward optimal wellness through improving the immune system and gastrointestinal health.
Nicholas Morgan, ND – Integrative Specialty
Nicholas Morgan, ND, is in his second year of residency in an integrative arthritis care clinic. Dr. Morgan has also started a private practice in Lansing, Michigan, called the Center for Integrative Wellness, a patient-oriented practice that uses evidence-based nutrition, dietary intervention, herbal/botanical medicine, and lifestyle modification to promote health.
Timothy Marando, ND, DC – Naturopathic and Chiropractic Medicine
Timothy Marando, ND, DC, joined a sports medicine practice with his brother, Dr. Paul Marando (another NUHS DC grad). Dr. Marando says his dual degree in naturopathic medicine helps him with athletes who come in with chronic underlying conditions in addition to sports injuries. He feels he has a deeper understanding of physiological processes which helps him in prescribing supplements to maximize his patients’ performance.
Katie Borchert, ND, MSOM – Naturopathic and Oriental Medicine
Dr. Katie Borchert has both an ND and MSOM degree from NUHS. She currently works in suburban Chicago at an interdisciplinary chiropractic clinic and a therapeutic massage center that incorporates clinical services. Katie says, “I’m very happy I chose a dual degree in oriental medicine, as the scope of practice under my acupuncture license is very close to what we do in naturopathic medicine.” She hopes to expand her practice in the future, integrating acupuncture and holistic therapy with dental services.
