ABOUT THE SCHOOL
The Oncology Nutrition Institute (ONI) was founded in 2017 by Nutrition Therapist and award-winning journalist Jess Higgins Kelley, MNT. As a practitioner, after fruitless searching for additional, evidence-based training in nutrition for cancer, she decided to research and develop a gold-standard program to train other practitioners looking to add the value of therapeutic nutrition to their current practice. Because ninety-seven percent of medical schools don't even teach basic nutrition science.
While co-writing the best-selling book, The Metabolic Approach to Cancer, Jess concurrently began the R&D of what is now the 250-Hour Oncology Nutrition Consulting (ONC) certification program. The first ten classes of the 40-week program are based on this life changing book, and our advisory, research, and education team has grown to include dozens of professionals in the field of systems-based metabolic oncology nutrition therapy.
Today ONI is proud to have trained medical and nutrition professionals from around the globe while offering free, small fee, and CEU programs to the public. The school is 100% virtual, however our research center is based in Maine, USA where we are developing medicinal, therapeutic gardens while supporting regenerative agricultural programs and sustainable fishing practices. From research to recipes, ONI is leading the global conversation around the importance of integrating nutrition into the standard of cancer care and prevention initiatives.
