Krista A. Bargsten
Research Administrative Assistant
An interest in natural medicine and research brought Krista to NCNM's Helfgott Research Institute where she assists with multiple projects and functions as the IRB liaison.
Since graduating from Hampshire College in 2001 with a bachelor's degree in liberal arts, Krista has held a variety of positions in academic and non-profit settings. Her interests are broad and varied, but not limited to infectious disease, human cognitive evolution, documentary media and media studies, technology mediated communication, behavior patterns, sensory perception and hallucination, acupuncture and Chinese medicine, mind-body-spirit and energy medicine, drugless mental health care, health disparities, invention daydreaming, and unfettered free time. She plans to pursue a doctorate in Chinese medicine.
