Dr. Thalia Charney
Dr. Thalia Charney graduated from CCNM in 2003 and has been practicing Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto for the past 15 years. She is working on The Confident Food Shopper: The Guide to Food Labels and Fables, the most comprehensive reference book on food labels in North America. Thalia’s branding of herself as The Classroom Doc speaks to her profound belief in the role of “Doctor as Teacher”. She wants not only to educate people but aspires to get them excited about food and hopefully a lot more critical about the information they get from food packages, food companies, media and yes… even Health Canada and the FDA. Dr. Charney is also the cofounder of The Holistic Approach Professional Association (HAPA) and founder of Play-Match-Date, a novel teaching method using improvisation to help people develop dating skills.
