From Canada to England to Australia, people around the globe are taking it upon themselves to launch blogs and inform the public about the importance of health and wellness. At Integrative Nutrition, we like to support and thank those who are aligned with the mission of our school. When people use their knowledge to teach others how to be healthier and happier, together we can create a ripple effect that will transform the world.
This is at the core of our 2020 Vision, and with 30,000 graduates in 102 countries around the globe, that ripple effect is getting stronger than ever. That’s why this month, we awarded nine talented international bloggers with a scholarship for our upcoming Health Coach Training Program! With their IIN education, these bloggers will continue to do their important work better than ever and will make a true difference in their communities and beyond.
Find out more about each of our scholarship recipients below. We are thrilled to have them be a part of our growing Health Coach community!
