About the Barnard Medical Center

If you need to treat and reverse diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, or other chronic conditions, the Barnard Medical Center will help you revolutionize your health. We advance medical care by emphasizing the causes of illness. That means that, although medications often play a key role in health, if your problem is nutritional we will help you tackle that, too. Perhaps you won’t need medications at all.

Our center takes advantage of years of research conducted by the Physicians Committee research team and other researchers, showing how a new approach to medicine and nutrition could help prevent and reverse serious health problems. 

The Physicians Committee

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine was founded in 1985 to promote preventive medicine, especially good nutrition, to conduct research, and to advocate for higher standards in research.

Research at the Physicians Committee has revolutionized the treatment of diabetes and other health problems and has been instrumental in reforming federal nutrition guidelines. The Physicians Committee’s medical education programs give clinicians and scientists the tools they need, and its educational programs reach millions of people worldwide.

The Physicians Committee has opened the Barnard Medical Center as a means of providing state-of-the-art care and exploring innovative ways to help patients regain and protect their health.
