Dr. William Mitchell was one on the co-founders of Bastyr University, and was nationally recognized as one of the top physicians of his field. He dedicated his life to the advancement of Naturopathic Medicine through clinical and educational work. He practiced Naturopathic Medicine in its true form, using the healing power of nature to support each individual in treatment and prevention of disease, and in their achievement of optimal health. As a physician he helped thousands of patients over 30 years, empowering countless people to make positive changes for themselves and their families. As a teacher, he educated and inspired clients and students across the nation until his death in January of 2007. He is greatly missed.
