Medical Doctor

Dr. Moyano is a medical doctor who works as an Anesthesiologist. She received her medical and anesthesiologist’s degrees in Colombia.

She has a special interest in frailty syndrome and delirium in the elderly associated with postoperative states which was her research project for her postgraduate thesis; this research led to a growing interest in how a whole food plant-based diet and lifestyle changes can modify the course of non-transmissible chronic diseases.

She pursued this new interest and passion at TrueNorth Health Center in 2021, where she received training in whole food plant-based diet and water fasting.

She has attended International Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conferences and is currently preparing herself to obtain the Diplomate from the International Board of Lifestyle Medicine.

Outside of medicine, Dr. Moyano is passionate about nature, scuba diving, running, and volunteering at health brigades and animal sanctuaries.
