Member, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine National Advisory Board
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Ana M. Negrón, a board certified family physician in Pennsylvania for over three decades, has made cooking with patients integral to her practice. She assists patients in transitioning to a whole food plant-based diet in order to reduce inflammation, to alleviate the need for many medications, and to help prevent or treat a wide variety of chronic medical conditions, such as: obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, arthritis, acid reflux, erectile dysfunction, acne, asthma and cancers. She also lectures to family physicians and medical groups about the role of food in illness and medical practice, and about the interaction of multiple risk factors in patients. She is the senior faculty member at the Crozer Family Practice Residency in Springfield PA, and has served as Faculty Preceptor since 1996.
Dr. Negrón is a member of the National Advisory Board for Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. She has since 1999 also volunteered in practicing at clinics for the uninsured and underserved, and has long served on the board of directors of the Phoenixville clinic. Her book, “Nourishing the Body and Recovering Health: The Positive Science of Food”, published by Sunstone Press, emphasizes alternatives to society’s reliance on pharmaceuticals in attempting to address health problems.
Dr. Negrón has received a Champion of the Community Award, a Community Betterment Award and a Phoenixville Chamber of Commerce Leadership Award. Her vision and ideals are reflected in her statement: “In my medical practice as in my private life I have a clear sense of purpose — to advance food literacy, reduce suffering, and limit damage to our selves and our surroundings.”
