Peggy Miller has worked in health care for many years, but she was not always on the natural health care side of things. After interns from Northwestern’s acupuncture and Oriental Medicine program visited Miller’s Women’s Health Clinic, she had a change of heart regarding her occupation. “After talking with people from Northwestern, I knew I wanted to be on their side of the table.”
As a student at Northwestern, Miller enjoyed the herbal program and herbal dispensary the most. “Instructors were amazing and shared astonishing knowledge. The herbal dispensary radiates health and knowledge.”
Miller’s student clinical experiences were diverse and imparted a lot of practical knowledge. She advises students to take these opportunities seriously. “Students must remember that when you go to school, you are becoming the healer that you will eventually be. You must take your studies seriously and learn as much as you can in the short time you are in school.”
As a 2002 graduate, Miller is now working in various hospital settings, including the Penny George Institute for Health and Healing at Abbott Northwestern Hospital and the oncology department at Unity Hospital, and maintains her own small practice.
Miller finds that her herbal medicine education from Northwestern allows her patients to be more involved in their own care. “They are enabled to participate in their own treatment because acupuncture and Oriental medicine treats the whole person, not just the disease.”
