“Nutrition is the formative base of health and wellness. Here at Bastyr we blend a deep scientific knowledge of individual nutritional needs with the art of translating it to healthful, ethical, environmentally conscious and transformative nourishing practices. We believe that to be healthy as individuals we must be healthy as a community, and we prepare our students to become agents of change to a wellness model.
