JulieAnn Nugent-Head MD (China) PhD
JulieAnn completed a masters degree in Oriental medicine in the United States and a doctorate level medical degree at Zhejiang Chinese Medicine University in Hangzhou, China.
JulieAnn was fortunate to gain clinical experience under two of Beijing’s most famous traditional practitioners Dr Li Hongxiang (1924-2018) and Dr Chen Tongyun (1922 -), while working with the Association for Traditional Studies documentation project. ATS’s not for profit work aimed at documenting, disseminating and preserving traditional Chinese arts, archived thousands of clinical herbal prescriptions and hundreds of hours of videos in the homes of Drs Li & Chen discussing classic Chinese medicine texts.
After living in China for eight and a half years, the changing visa laws and cost of raising 3 children in China led JulieAnn and husband Andrew to return to the United States in 2014. They now reside in Asheville, NC in the glorious blue ridge mountains. JulieAnn teaches internationally, treats patients at the Alternative Clinic and oversees development of the Nugent-Head’s organic tea and herb farm.
