Portland, OR— March 4, 2014—American College of Healthcare Sciences (—an accredited online college specializing in undergraduate and graduate programs in holistic nutrition, including a Master of Science in Holistic Nutrition—is proud to be a Platinum Sponsor of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals’ (NANP) upcoming 2014 Conference & Expo: Transforming Health through Holistic Nutrition. The event will take place from April 25-27, 2014 at the Hilton El Conquistador in Tucson, Arizona.

“Good nutrition is essential for optimal health and wellness. As consumers, we make decisions about our diet every day, including what to eat and what not to eat for our individual body chemistry, lifestyle, and preferences. But the amount of information available in the media to help us make decisions can be overwhelming and contradictory, which makes credible holistic nutrition education extremely important,” says Dorene Petersen, ACHS Founder and President. “NANP is a leader in the advancement of holistic nutrition information, and their annual Conference & Expo is an exceptional tool for sharing knowledge and resources in holistic nutrition. I encourage ACHS students and graduates and all holistic nutrition enthusiasts to attend.”

Current nutrition students who are also members of NANP are eligible to apply until March 7, 2014 for the Bonnie Fisk Hayden Student Scholarship to attend the conference. Learn more about the Scholarship at
