Barbara Damron has been involved in her family mental health practice for the past 25 years. She saw the need for a medical component to be part of a full wellness assessment, and this guided her into the medical field. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from MidAmerica Nazarene University in 2010, and in 2016 was awarded her Masters of Science in Nursing from Rockhurst College. As an RN she worked primarily in critical care servicing six HCA hospitals in the Kansas City area helping patients to achieve their health goals. Her passion for holistic medicine led her into the field of functional and regenerative medicine and an invaluable year’s experience with the Epigenetics Healing Center. She now brings her passion for optimal health back to her family practice to achieve a fully integrated service to their patients. Her deep love of people and lifetime commitment to healing has guided her to offer service wherever needed. She recently returned from three months on the front line in New York fighting the COVID pandemic. Her service to others further included a 15 year involvement with Aids Orphan Education Trust of Uganda, Africa, organizing children’s choir tours here in the United States to raise funds and awareness of the devastating effects of AIDS in that part of the world. She is happily married to her husband of 28 years and enjoys spending time with her four young adult children as often as she can. She loves traveling, music, dancing and community service.
