I am Dr. Ruth Elsasser, course faculty for Advanced Pharmacology (PC707). I most recently practiced in an Integrative Primary Care Clinic, specializing in Functional Medicine in Hood River, OR. I work full-time at Frontier Nursing University. I love learning about new things related to attaining/maintaining health and wellness. My current obsession is learning about Ayurvedic Medicine. I have two boys, Victor age 13 and Tsadiku age 11. They keep me quite busy! I am also married and I have two doggies and 2 kitties. I enjoy practicing yoga, hiking, reading, studying, spending time with family and friends, and working at FNU. My life is quite full!
