Michelle Eckroth, MD, a board-certified pediatrician in Albany, specializes in pediatric integrative medicine. She has served the local community for 20 years as a general pediatrician and two years as an integrative pediatrician.
“As an integrative pediatrician, I assist parents in protecting and preserving their children’s health by making informed dietary and lifestyle choices, as well as avoidance of environmental toxins, to bring a holistic approach to the treatment of the chronic diseases of childhood.”
The Fellowship in Integrative Medicine is an internationally-recognized program launched in 1997 by integrative medicine pioneer Andrew Weil, MD. It is a 1,000-hour, two-year distance-learning program for physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
“We’re excited to have Dr. Eckroth as a graduate of this competitive and intensive program of study,” said Ann Marie Chiasson, MD, interim director of the fellowship for the Center for Integrative Medicine. “She shows a deep commitment to medicine and patient care, and I’m fully confident that this two-years of additional training will give Dr. Eckroth the tools to excel in integrative medicine and become a leader in the field.”
