  • " Hawthorn education was invaluable when my husband had a heart attack a year ago. Through access to Hawthorn's data base and instructors, I was able to help guide my husband through his recovery."
    Marilyn Ravesies // MSTN Graduate 2015
  • "My time with Hawthorn was wonderfully invigorating and very challenging. I have studied health and nutrition for many years but entering a formal course of study exposed and helped fill in many necessary learning gaps."
    Janet Langford // NC Graduate 2015
  • "Going through the Masters of Holistic Nutrition was an incredible journey. I learned to better listen to my body, make changes to my lifestyle and share my experience with my family and the readers on my blog."
