Meet Lucy, the author & founder of NextGen Medicine
Lucy is an MD/PhD student at the University of Illinois. After struggling with chronic eczema for nineteen years, Lucy turned to a more integrative approach and came across the connection between nutrition, the gut microbiome, and skin health. She was ultimately able to completely reverse her eczema and decided to pursue her PhD in Nutritional Sciences to study the role of diet and exercise on the gut microbiome in states of health and disease. In 2017, she launched this blog with the hopes of sharing what she had learned with others through her graduate research and independent study.
Lucy is the founder and sole author of NextGen Medicine, writing evidence-based articles about gut and skin health, nutrition, the microbiome, and exercise science. She is regularly invited to speak on gut health around the country and has been recognized as one of the most trusted experts in the integrative health space. Lucy recently finished her PhD in Nutritional Sciences and plans to continue her training and begin her MD in 2020 after a year dedicated to NextGen Medicine and the launch of a gut-related startup.
