You have chosen to be part of a diverse and vibrant community centered around natural healing. We are excited to have you join us!
NUNM has been a leader and an innovator since 1956. As the parent institution of naturopathic programs taught in North America, NUNM has educated and trained generations of naturopathic physicians for the last 65 years. Graduates from our programs are changing the face of natural healthcare and research.
Whether we are students, staff or faculty, each of us at NUNM plays a critical role in advancing our mission.
In the months and years ahead, your program’s faculty will challenge and support you. I invite you to stay curious and do the hard work required not only of your courses, but also your personal exploration and growth. By doing so, you will empower yourself, find clarity of purpose, communicate authentically, and become your best self — all of these actions are critical to your success. Pause at each milestone along the way to reflect and celebrate your growth in knowledge, skills and attributes.
Meaningful transformation begins here, I can attest to that. As an alumna (ND & CCM ‘05), I have come full circle by returning home. As your president, I am honored to welcome you to the community and to your new home.
I wish you all the best on your naturopathic journey. If you see me around campus or on a Zoom call, please say hello.
Dr. Melanie Henriksen, ND, LAc, CNM
