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 and I am currently studying Ayurvedic Medicine through the American Institute of Vedic Studies.

I have two boys, Victor age 10 and Tsadiku age 8. They keep me quite busy! I am also married and I have two doggies. I enjoy practicing yoga, hiking, reading, studying, spending time with family and friends, and working at FNU. My life is quite full!
