Karen Schlussel

Karen Schlussel is to be congratulated for graduating with the Summa cum Laude designation in the Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education program. Karen also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from New York University, and an Associate in Applied Science degree from The Fashion Institute of Technology. Her varied professional experience includes magazine editing in the fashion department at Cosmopolitan, working in fashion manufacturing, floral design, teaching, and fundraising at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. Throughout her adult life she has been passionate about holistic healthy and natural living. After successfully healing her own health conditions using diet and lifestyle behavior modifications as tools, rather than prescription pharmaceuticals, she felt the strong need and desire to help others do the same and enriched her knowledge through Hawthorn's program. Her goal is to disseminate holistic health, nutritional, and lifestyle behavior education through lectures, one-on-one individualized programs and begin writing her first cookbook to spread this important information and empower people to heal themselves and live as optimally as possible. Her thesis is entitled Osteoarthritis Elimination Intervention (OEI) With an Educational Program of Nutritional Guidance, Lifestyle Modifications, and Cooking Methods to Prevent, Improve, and Reverse Symptoms in Adults. Best of luck, Karen!
