Meet Hayoung Oh, our new Bread Therapist from Harvard University, USA

Back in June, 2022, we were delighted to host and train in Bread Therapy at the first Bread House in Gabrovo, Bulgaria, Hayoung Oh, an American with Korean heritage. Hayoung is a recent Master of Public Health graduate from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and currently a research assistant  to Dr. Jennifer Wortham at the Harvard University Human Flourishing Program (, working towards child abuse prevention and healing programs. His research at Ann Arbor focused on vulnerable populations such as those experiencing homelessness, substance abuse, and racial/ethnic minorities. “He enjoys all things fermentation, especially sourdough. Hayoung believes that food is the key to remembering who/what/why/when we are.” After being trained in Bread Therapy in the summer of 2022, Hayoung hopes to utilize Bread Therapy to help vulnerable populations better understand themselves and the world around them. Hayoung’s first event employing Bread Therapy, focusing on food & emotions, was in November with a foster care organization in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
