Dr. Kim Mayer, a highly valued member of our team, passed away July 17, 2002. Kim received her N.D. from Bastyr University, Kenmore, WA, her L.M.P. (licensed massage practitioner) from the Brenneke School of Massage, and her B.A. from Rutgers University. Dr. Mayer, was a licensed naturopathic physician in Washington State, and was employed by Salugenecists, Inc. a company founded in 2000 by Dr. Joe Pizzorno, where she helped to create the next generation of science-based, natural medicine health promotion systems. Kim was a wonderful mother and delighted in her daughter, Morgan, who was just beginning to talk a blue streak when Kim passed on. Dr. Mayer was especially attuned to the health concerns of women and children, as well as issues of public health promotion and the prevention of chronic illness. She is sorely missed by all who knew her, but her legacy lives on, not only in Morgan, but in the healing work she helped Salugenecists begin.
