Integrative Therapeutics names 2013 residency winner

Integrative Therapeutics, in partnership with the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP) names the winner of the 2013 STAIR Integrative Residency Program.

Integrative Therapeutics, in partnership with the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP), is pleased to announce Dr. Allison Hendrix as the winner of the 2013 STAIR Integrative Residency Program.  

The STAIR Program offers a unique opportunity for both new naturopathic graduates and integrative medical practices. A qualified naturopathic graduate is matched with a successful integrative practice for a yearlong residency, fully-funded by Integrative Therapeutics.

Mandy Kraynik, Vice President of Integrative Therapeutics, explains, “This program is designed to address a serious issue: a lack of real-world opportunities for naturopathic graduates. I believe the key to cultivating successful practices is providing new healthcare professionals with the practical application opportunities and business development skills they need to make it on their own.”

After earning her doctorate in naturopathic medicine from the National College of Natural Medicine this spring, Hendrix will begin her residency at Federal Way Naturopathy, Inc. in Federal Way, Washington. She will have the opportunity to gain real-world experience as she participates in the full-spectrum of clinic life. At Federal Way Naturopathy, Dr. Hendrix will receive mentorship from Dr. Beth DiDomenico, ND, and Dr. Anja Crider, MD. The clinic’s focus is facilitating the body’s own natural mechanisms for healing using modalities such as homeopathy, cranial sacral therapy, hydrotherapy, botanical medicine, counseling, and nutrition.

“The STAIR residencies help eradicate the boundaries and barriers that too often exist between naturopathic and conventional care, and working with both an ND and MD will give Dr. Hendrix a well-rounded, unique healthcare experience,” explains Kraynik.

Recruitment for 2014 residency sites will begin in June. Visit for application details or more information on the STAIR Integrative Residency Program.
