We focus on initiatives that address the social drivers of health

and with those investing in solutions.

We're proponents of food as medicine,

health justice and equity,

community health and whole health.

Examples from our portfolio.



JustHealth® is a Food is Medicine consultancy serving the Washington, DC area. We provide research, program and policy development, and technical assistance to improve health outcomes among individuals, families and communities. Our clients range from government agencies, community-based and national nonprofits, health centers, and start-up and growth stage businesses who seek innovation, systems change, or evidence-based, health-related programming that improves the status quo.


We begin by deeply listening to your needs and developing a scope of services. We’re flexible enough to provide the time-commitment you need to achieve your vision, whether that’s a one-time workshop or strategic planning session, a speaking engagement or research project, or a multi-year program rollout.  


Then, we bring together the right expertise to meet your needs, drawing on our deep ties in the health and wellness sector.  We immerse ourselves in your vision, and work with you to help you achieve your leadership objectives. 


We check-in regularly to solicit feedback, refine work plans, and identify obstacles before they emerge. We excel at facilitating meaningful dialogue that translates vision and goals into action.

“I can’t begin to quantify how much I learned, and the nutritional coaching we received was transformative. Not only have I completely changed life-long habits, allowing me to part with at least half of my wardrobe, but I was able to stop taking three medications because I no longer needed them. Perhaps, my greatest reward was embracing my own inner resolve and capacity for change.”

Kathy Bixby, Advance Practice Nurse & Veteran, MSN, RN
