Dr. Trudy Pieper, of Phoenix Wellness Center in Johnstown, was recently awarded the American Naturopathic Medical Association (ANMA) “Higher Achievement Award” for 2014, in recognition of “distinguished performance in naturopathic medicine.” Naturopathic doctors avoid drugs or surgery, where possible, and seek alternate means of medical treatment such as dietary changes and herbal remedies.
The award was presented to Dr. Pieper in September during a member’s luncheon at the ANMA’s thirty-third annual convention in Las Vegas. The ANMA was founded in 1981 as a nonprofit scientific and educational organization. It is the nation’s oldest and largest association of naturopathic doctors, with nearly 4,000 members.
Dr. Pieper is a frequent guest on local radio stations in Licking and Knox counties, and presents her health tips across 20 counties to viewers of WTLW. She is currently preparing a book about cancer prevention, due out next year, and remains active on the Licking County Humane Society Board and the Johnstown Area Community Foundation Board.
