Wolfram Alderson has nearly four decades experience serving in leadership roles involving design, development, and administration of innovative programs created to improve human and environmental health. He employs a diverse range of strategies and tactics. Combining these with his exceptional management skills, Alderson will lead the Hypoglycemia Support Foundation (HSF) in ful lling its mission of bringing critical information about hypoglycemia, and metabolic disease in general, to adults and children, and the public and health care industry at large.
In 2013, Alderson and Dr. Robert Lustig, a globally renowned neuroendocrinologist and Professor of Pediatrics at UCSF, founded the Institute for Responsible Nutrition (IRN). Alderson served as its Executive Director and COO until March 2017, when he merged it with the United States Healthful Food Council/EatReal. Lustig is the author of several books including “Fat Chance and Hacking of the American Mind.” Alderson continues as Global Education Director for Dr. Robert Lustig. Alderson and Lustig share a mutual interest in preventing and reversing metabolic disease, which includes hypoglycemia, versus simply (or not so simply) treating it. Dr. Lustig has also joined the HSF family as a Medical Advisor. As a nationally recognized leader and networker in the eld of metabolic health and nutrition, Alderson brings considerable assets and connections to the HSF.
e broad focus of Alderson’s lifetime of work has been improving human and environmental health – often by developing programs and organizations that accomplish both. His career began as a teenager when he founded the first Certified Farmers’ Market in California (the Gardena Farmers’ Market started in 1979 and is still going today). One of Alderson’s endeavors is a startup called “perfact” – offering a powerful new technology platform dedicated to making the food system more transparent and also a partner with HSF. e project is leading the development of a sugar matrix that has revealed over 300 names for added sugar, making this data available to public health advocacy groups like HSF.
Complementing his work improving the human condition is Alderson’s artwork. He has been a working artist since 1986. Primarily self-taught, Alderson has served as curator and lead artist in several public exhibitions, and developed two major art therapy and rehabilitation programs, one for Cuban refugees and the other for severely abused children. Alderson’s art has always built on the foundation of community, culture, and love – intersecting in powerful ways with the people he has served.

Rounding out Alderson’s career as a social change agent is his devotion to his wife, two cats, and the San Francisco community where he resides. His professional website and complete resume are online at https://www.linkedin.com/in/wolframalderson.
