Together for over 20 years, Rob and Julie have been at the forefront of health and wellness. They have changed the face of healthcare by combining their educations, skills and passions. They are guided by a simple principle: to help people live happier, healthier lives.

In 2010, they developed Fare Wellness, a culinary medicine program educating resident doctors about healthy vegan cooking and eating, and “The Lenox CHill,” a yoga, meditation, stress reduction and wellness program for healthcare workers, which was adopted throughout the entire 60,000 employee health system.

In 2013, they planted the seeds for “Victory Greens,” the first-ever edible, organic rooftop garden at Lenox Hill Hospital where patients and staff eat, rest and digest the fruits and veggies of their labor.

In 2016, they launched FRESH Medicine, an integrative health practice that combines the best of conventional medicine, including medications, diagnostic testing, tools and technologies, with evidence-based complementary therapies, clinical nutrition, functional medicine, positive psychology and health coaching.

FRESH stands for: Food, Relaxation, Exercise, Sleep and Happiness, the five pillars of well-being.
