Take your place as a Nutrition & Wellness Faculty Member!

Nutrition & Wellness Faculty discussions will focus on topics about which members are passionate – including products, techniques, and opportunities. Members can learn from the experiences of others — what works, and what doesn’t.

Ben Briggs, RPh, CNC, IACP is the Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Lionville Natural Pharmacy. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy from Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, now known as the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. He has been involved in some aspect of pharmacy for over 50 years. His background in pharmacognosy, biochemistry, pharmacology, homeopathy, & functional endocrinology led him to develop a holistic nutritional protocol entitled BENS SELF program.

Dr. Hillary Howell, PharmD, FACA, CCN opened Michigan’s first integrative cash-based pharmacy, Apothecary Co. in 2019 focusing on helping others to find their root cause instead of applying a “bandaid”. Apothecary Co. proudly specializes in compounding, point-of-care testing, and functional medicine consulting. Since opening in 2019, Hillary received her Certified Clinical Nutrition designation in 2021. She is currently pursuing a certification program through the Institute for Functional Medicine. Besides the love for functional medicine, her other passion is medicinal herbalism leading her to complete coursework through Rosemary Gladstar’s The Science of Art and Herbalism program.

24/7 Online Community Exclusively for the Nutrition & Wellness Faculty

In addition, members of the Nutrition & Wellness Faculty will have exclusive access to an online community to discuss, share, and give their views on micronutrients, deficiencies, products and supplements, interactions, testing, patient assessment, forms, software and apps, promotions, consultations, functional medicine, and much more.

Why faculties?

One of the College’s strengths is the sharing of ideas – which historically has been accomplished through in-person meetings. ACA is augmenting these meetings with faculties that will assemble using digital technology – including Zoom, email, and an exclusive online community. Faculty involvement is intended to facilitate peer-to-peer networking and relationship building.

Your participation is a no-cost ACA membership benefit available to any individual member. In addition to ACA’s Nutrition & Wellness Faculty and Compounding Faculty, we have a third future faculty in development, which is the Practice Entrepreneurship Faculty.
