Dr. Brenda McBride is a board certified Nutrition Physician Specialist who approaches nutrition and healthcare from an integrative and functional perspective based on the belief that the body has the capacity to heal itself if given the right tools and if the underlying causes of disease are addressed.

Inspired by such positive outcomes, she began taking private nutrition patients with a variety of other chronic illnesses.
She completed her medical training at The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland where she developed an interest in food as medicine. She returned to her home town of Philadelphia for residency in pediatrics. In addition to her private practice, she is an Oncology Hospitalist at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, where she completed her fellowship in nutrition. She has also completed her integrative medicine residency through the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine.
