001. at statnews.com, there's the ND Greenlee-centered article "Heather Greenlee: Promoting Veggies, and Acupuncture, to Help Cope with Cancer" (2016-04-08) (2016 archived) by Karen Weintraub which states:
*BTW, we know that acupuncture is an elaborate placebo, from rigorous scientific trials. So, what does it say when a Columbia University PhD doesn't know that...about the person's competency? So I'm NOT IMPRESSED.
"researchers like Heather Greenlee, an assistant professor of epidemiology at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health [...] Heather Greenlee is an assistant professor at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health and a past president of the Society for Integrative Oncology [...who has] a PhD in epidemiology as well as a degree in naturopathic medicine [...]";
to integrate is to blend...so junk blended with science.
"I work at one of the top public health schools [...] there are some pretty wacky things that people do. A lot of patients use integrative therapies out of fear, out of hope, or out of a belief system. But medical decisions need to be made based on facts [...]";
oh, my! Facts as OPPOSED to beliefs. Now, Greenlee went to Bastyr for her ND: Bastyr, where facts and beliefs are the same thing, INTEGRATED and then falsely labeled the distinction "science-based." The contradiction is killing me: she just annulled her ND, by applying her PhD to the area of naturopathy accidentally.
