Dr Neal Barnard, MD, FACC at the NHA Conference 2024 - Join us Virtually!

Updated: May 23




Neal Barnard, MD, FACC, is an Adjunct Professor of Medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, DC, and President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.


As president of the Physicians Committee, Dr Barnard leads programs advocating for preventive medicine, good nutrition, and higher ethical standards in research. His research contributed to the acceptance of plant-based diets in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. In 2015, he was named a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology. In 2016, he founded the Barnard Medical Center in Washington, DC, as a model for making nutrition a routine part of all medical care.  



Dr Barnard has led numerous research studies investigating the effects of diet on diabetes, body weight, hormonal symptoms, and chronic pain, including a ground-breaking study of dietary interventions in type 2 diabetes, funded by the National Institutes of Health, that paved the way for viewing type 2 diabetes as a potentially reversible condition for many patients. Dr Barnard has authored more than 100 scientific publications and 20 books for medical and lay readers, and is the editor in chief of the Nutrition Guide for Clinicians, a textbook made available to all U.S. medical students.

The mission of the National Health Association (NHA) is to educate and empower individuals to understand that health results from healthful living. We recognize the integration of all aspects of health: personal, environmental, and social. We communicate the benefits of a plant-based diet, exercise and rest, a healthy environment, psychological well-being, and the benefits of water-only fasting.

We take a leadership role in advocating health freedom issues and have done so now for 76 years.


In 1948, the American Natural Hygiene Society (ANHS) was established in New York City by pioneering figures including Drs. Herbert Shelton, William Esser, and others. The ANHS inaugural National Convention took place in 1949, marking a milestone in its journey. Throughout the years, ANHS continued to expand its influence, with significant milestones such as the formation of the Natural Hygiene Press in 1964 and achieving nonprofit status in 1969. Dr. Shelton's profound impact on the movement is evident in the publication of his seminal work, "Fasting Can Save Your Life."


The ANHS’s evolution saw shifts in leadership and headquarters, culminating in its name change to the NHA and the relocation to Youngstown, Ohio, under the leadership of President Mark Huberman in 2014. Today, under the guidance of Executive Director Wanda Huberman, the NHA remains committed to its mission of promoting natural hygiene principles and holistic health practices.
