Dr. Andrew Heyman

A4M Director of Academic Affairs


In 1990, Dr. Andrew Heyman received formal training in Shiatsu and Traditional Chinese Medicine, during which time he developed an interest in increasing access to natural therapies to underserved populations. He continued this work with Jim Gordon, MD at the Center for Mind-Body Medicine in Washington DC exploring the intersection between public health, at-risk groups, and alternative therapies. After he received a Master’s in Health Services Administration in 1998, he became the administrator for the University of Michigan Complementary and Alternative Medicine Research Center where he was responsible for administering a $7 million NIH grant to research alternative therapies for cardiovascular diseases. The center has developed into an integrative medical institution incorporating alternative therapies into contemporary medicine which was rarely found in the US at that time.
After he obtained a medical license in 2004, he has held his position as the co-chair of the joint research group for 4 years involving Integrative Medicine with a collaboration of 57 North American Universities. He is a chief online editor for the Journal of Men’s Health in the section of Integrative Medicine and holds the position of Editor-In-Chief of the Internet Journal of Anti-Aging and Aesthetic Medicine, and he also remains active in other media.
