NAT 210

Anatomy & Physiology I Online


NAT 210 is the first of three Level Two anatomy and physiology programs at ACHS. The focus of the anatomy and physiology courses is holistic anatomy and physiology. Holistic health is based on restoring the normal structure and function of the human body for optimal wellness. In order to understand how to restore balance to the body systems, students must first understand the normal structure and function of those systems.
