Kristann Heinz, MD, RD
Kristann's interest in medicine began at the early age of six when her father, an Army Surgeon, took her on his hospital rounds. Her commitment and service to others took shape in high school when she worked as a nursing assistant in the Alzheimer’s Unit of a nursing home. She then pursued and completed an undergraduate degree in Nutrition at Simmons College, as well as a community based dietetic internship. Working as a Registered Dietician, she ran community based maternal and child health nutrition programs in a number of venues, including WIC, HealthCare for the Homeless, and Neighborhood Health Centers. She subsequently received two Maternal and Child Health Fellowship Awards to study adolescent nutrition, as well as nutrition in children with specialized needs.
Through her experiential recognition of the value nutrition played in health and wellness, she decided to pursue a degree in medicine—earning it at the University of Pennsylvania—followed by a Family Medicine Residency at Lehigh Valley Health Network. During residency, she began to study other healing modalities such as acupuncture, homeopathy, and herbal medicine. After completing residency she worked within the integrative medical field before establishing Red Hill Medical.
Dr. Heinz is dedicated to the understanding that the basis for wellness and healing rests in a foundation of good nutrition, physical movement, and emotional health. With personal research that is never-ceasing, she follows the charge that it is every person’s right to truly understand their own personal health story. She actively continues to education herself and is currently studying to be a Certified Practitioner with the Institute for Functional Medicine.
Kristann is a Medical Doctor, board certified with the American Academy of Family Medicine and American Board of Integrative-Holistic Medicine, as well as a Registered Dietician. She is also certified as a Medical Acupuncturist.
