5303.jpg What has been the most surprising part of the HNFM program at UWS? I went in knowing that I wanted to further expand my credentials in functional medicine and nutrition, however I did not expect that I would be experiencing such an expansion of knowledge from such an outstanding caliber of professors. I am continually impressed with the level of dynamic education that I am being afforded though this program.

5304.jpg Why did you choose UWS? Why did you choose HNFM? I chose UWS for its interesting sounding classes (compared to the standard class names I was seeing in other programs), and its online convenience. I chose HNFM because I wanted to refresh and gain a deeper understanding of nutrition to apply to my practice.
