Insight: Food Into Medicine
For Medea Galligan, nutrition is nurturing.
In 1985, a 19-year-old college student embarked upon a quest to understand what the word “health” meant—not just the dictionary definition, but the entirety of good (or bad) health, and the resulting implications for humans. Medea Galligan would eventually go on to earn a master’s degree in nutrition from Oklahoma State University and graduate from New York City’s Institute of Integrative Nutrition. By 1998 she’d launched her own business, Healthy Lifestyle Concepts, LLC, in order to help people recognize and sustain the very real connection between nutrition and health.
