Dr. Jody E. Noé joined the College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2006 as a full-time faculty member, teaching in academic and clinical settings. Noé holds a Bachelor’s degree and Master of Science from Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia; and a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University, Seattle, Washington. Noé studied botany and ethnobotany at the graduate level. Her study of the ethnobotany of the Cherokee Indians was the focus of her graduate research. In that study she collected the only herbarium specimen collection encompassing eastern and western bands of the Cherokee, with more than 250 specimens housed at the internationally indexed herbarium at Old Dominion.
Noe has practiced naturopathic medicine in Washington and Vermont, and currently has a private practice in Rhode Island. She was president emeritus of the Vermont Association of Naturopathic Physicians and is currently a board member of the Rhode Island Association of Naturopathic Physicians. Noe served as a senior staff physician at the private cancer hospital system, Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In addition to patient care, she conducted clinical research, designing the first phase III clinical trial in a random comparison study with a natural substance vs. a prescriptive intervention in stomatitis. She continues to lecture nationally on the topics of herbal medicine and integrative naturopathic cancer treatment.
She has published articles in peer-reviewed medical journals on various topics (see www.drjodynoe.com), the latest a review article accepted for publication by Integrative Cancer Therapies. Noé recently was awarded seed money from the University’s grant promotion for research on the ethnobotanical use of Cherokee herbal medicines to treat cancer. She is writing a textbook on the Fundamentals of Naturopathic Oncology.
