2019 Winner of the $250,000 Dr. Rogers Prize
for Excellence in Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Dr. Bonnie J. Kaplan, PhD
University of Calgary
DR. BONNIE KAPLAN is a Professor Emerita in the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary. In the late 1990’s, she challenged the conventional model of psychiatric research by studying the role of nutrition in mental illness and brain disorders. She dealt with skepticism and attacks on her work for over fifteen years, resolutely meeting and exceeding calls for evidence. Her research provided the initial ground-breaking data showing that treatment with a broad spectrum of micronutrients, carefully formulated, could be used instead of psychotropic drugs to treat a range of mental disorders. She is widely published and lectures around the world on the importance of improving nutrient intake to prevent and treat psychiatric symptoms.
