About Our Speaker:

Chloe Weber, L.Ac, MSOM (CEO and Co-Founder of Radical Roots)

Chloe developed an interest in public health and medicine after being diagnosed with Cutaneous Leishmaniasis in high school. As one of the first cases diagnosed in Costa Rica, Chloe was drawn to study Ecology and Evolutionary biology at CU Boulder where she began to understand how diseases evolve along with us and the deep connection between humans and our environment. Eventually, Chloe was drawn to Chinese medicine as a way to address public health issues. She graduated with a Masters of Oriental Medicine from Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder and spent time studying at Heilongjiang University Hospital in Harbin, China.

After graduating, Chloe co-founded a non-profit sliding-scale walk-in Chinese herb clinic called Urban Herbs. While running her clinic, Chloe was able to dive into the study of herbs and found great joy in community outreach. When Chloe’s son, Remy, was starting the journey towards diagnosis she decided to move home to New York to focus on supporting him. Working with Remy has lead Chloe to extensively study integrative neurology and functional medicine and has motivated her to find ways to help children with Neuro-Developmental issues and seizures.
