Ruth Westreich is a life-long artist, activist and passionate philanthropist. She has integrated all facets of herself to be a global change maker. She believes deeply that we cannot have personal health without planetary health. The two are inextricably connected.

Ruth also believes it is possible to make sea changes in our understanding of ourselves and the natural world we inhabit by reconnecting to our source. Above all, Ruth is a connector and strategist who creates communication bridges that bring together people from varied disciplines in health, the environment, discovery science and investigative journalism.

The Westreich Foundation uses thought-provoking art, activism and philanthropy to engage and unite people around the science and societal issues that erode and threaten human and planetary health, while providing an educational platform that inspires, connects, and supports organizations and people working toward healthier people and the planet.

For decades, The Westreich Foundation has supported a variety of people and causes, including Natural Medicine, Nutritional Science, Whole Person Health Care, and focusing on Environmental Toxins that erode the health and vibrancy of all life.

A recent example of this support that illustrates the interconnectedness of human and planetary health is the Our Common Home Gallery exhibit , Care of Our Common Home, conversations of Consequence at University San Diego.

“Her activist art provides a unique platform for intergenerational dialogue on climate change and other critical issues that we face in building a better world for future generations.”

– Emily Young, PhD, executive director, The Nonprofit Institute, University of San Diego
