What Our Graduates Are Saying
HPN woke me up to the fact that all the "evidence" out there in the world wide web isn't necessarily properly reviewed and proven. It gave me the skills I needed to research different ideas thoroughly so I could have an unbiased, evidence-based approach to my learning. HPN breaks through the hype and fear-mongering so common in today's health and weight-loss industry, and is so important for anyone who wants to be seen as a credible resource for health and well-being. I also learned the science behind the nutritional theories I practice which provided me with more confidence in my practice.
