University Status, $3 Million in NIH Grants
NCNM received approval from accreditors to become a university: The announcement came on the heels of approval and formation of a new School of Undergraduate & Part-Time Studies earlier this year, with classes to begin in fall 2016. The new name and logo will be announced in late June 2016.
NIH Grants: Evidence-Based Research is always a hot topic in natural medicine, with funding historically tight. NCNM’s School of Research & Graduate Studies, and its Helfgott Research Institute are paving the way to attract support for our students. Ongoing studies of diabetes, cancer, gastrointestinal issues, pain and nutrition, to name a few, are underway. Work at the school got a huge boost with the award of more than $3 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health. The two five-year complementary and integrative health grants will support studies involving mindfulness-based stress reduction for people with multiple sclerosis, and clinical research training for naturopathic doctors and Chinese medicine practitioners, as well as training in naturopathic and Chinese medicine modalities for conventional medicine researchers.
NCNM is the oldest and one of the best-known colleges of its type in the world and has been a recognized authority in providing ground-breaking naturopathic medical education for more than 50 years. Learn More about NCNM!
