This program provides students with the opportunity to learn about whole foods and traditional diets by incorporating the principles and philosophy of Weston A. Price. Students will be challenged to increase their critical thinking skills and be able to apply what they learn to their every day life and in the lives of others.

Students will develop personal and professional skills in holistic health, wellness promotion, and nutrition education as well as the teachings of the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF). Students develop professional materials and work on practical activities that will enhance their understanding of the science of holistic nutrition and the principles of the WAPF. Students are taught effective communication techniques to educate others in their communities or in their chapter groups as team leaders.

Students purchase books and diet analysis software that comprise the basis of a professional library and are introduced to quality online sources of nutritional information, DVDs, conference proceedings, and materials exclusive to WAPF members. Hawthorn materials, adjunct to the courses, are easily downloaded from the student portal. Students take online exams as well as a Midterm and Final Examination. Exams are proctored intermittently throughout the program. Assignments are graded and returned to the student’s website with written feedback.
