"You are not your 'problem list' and your diagnoses are labels that usually point to underlying...issues that will respond when correctly identified and treated."
Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) February 18, 2016
Dr. Dawn Cannon comes to NIHA after a twenty year career in academic medicine, and medical education and administration. Dr. Cannon worked in student affairs and admissions at the medical school level, guiding mentoring and learning from students from college through residency training and beyond.
A long standing interest in disease prevention, environmental medicine and an integrative medical approach to diagnosis led her to the preventive medicine program at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, where she learned the population approach to prevention of disease.
Dr. Dawn Cannon is board certified in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology and Transfusion Medicine by the American Board of Pathology, and in General Preventive Medicine and Public Health by the American Board of Preventive Medicine.
At National Integrated Health Associates, Dr. Cannon will focus on adult primary care, detoxification, preventive medicine, management of chronic disease, and women’s preventive and sexual health, especially in perimenopause and menopause. Her special interests include the damaging effects of environmental exposures and toxins and their roles in autoimmune, inflammatory, infectious, cardiovascular and other chronic diseases.
Dr. Cannon’s holistic approach to patient care is summarized in her words, “ You are not your ‘problem list’, and your diagnoses are labels that usually point to underlying nutritional, digestive, metabolic, hormonal, structural, physical and/or energetic issues that will respond when correctly identified and treated.” Finding and addressing the root cause of a health issue or disease is a tenet of functional medicine.
Dr. Dawn Cannon is now accepting new patients. She is committed to providing comprehensive care for the whole person, and incorporating innovative medical services and therapies offered at NIHA that may not be readily available elsewhere.
