About ERIN FREDERICKS, MSCN
I am a Food as Medicine advocate and a champion for Older Adults.
I spent 15 years in consumer advertising, working for foundational food
publishers like Bon Appetit, Martha Stewart and Rachael Ray, and online
health brands like WebMD and Medscape. From this vantage point, I
witnessed the increasing dysfunction between our modern food industry
and medical systems — and left the corporate world to receive my master’s degree in nutrition science from the National University of Natural Medicine.
We know that good nutrition is essential to the prevention and treatment of illness – but our current healthcare system is poorly structured to provide nutritional guidance. I designed the FAMILIAR program to teach nutritional fundamentals and a new way of meal planning – because I want to help Older Adults find a personalized set of lifestyle tools for aging well.
