In his quest for a more holistic approach to care, Anthony Pascucci found naturopathic medicine and ultimately, his calling. He shares his experience in changing his career to naturopathic medicine and as an ND student at the University of Bridgeport School of Naturopathic Medicine.

"Becoming a naturopathic doctor isn’t just a career, it is a way of being. Throughout the program we grow as students and as people. We learn determination, resiliency, adversity, empathy, courage, compassion, patience, and so much more."
