FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Portland, OR—March 24, 2016American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS) has been named #7 Most Affordable Online Nutrition Degree by OnlineU.org, an online guide that ranks accredited online schools in the U.S.

OnlineU compares accredited online colleges across the nation based on annual tuition rates, and according to their website, “seeks to help driven people accomplish their education goals in a financially responsible manner.”

“I am very proud that our online healthcare programs like our Master of Science in Holistic Nutrition are being recognized as both affordable and academically rigorous,” says ACHS CSO Erika Yigzaw.

“Holistic Nutrition is critical to overall health. The astronomical rates of diet-related chronic diseases like diabetes show us that this is an area where the country has been failing. The more we can educate and empower people to take charge of their food, the healthier we will all be. Our programs cover standard nutrition theory and then delve into specialized areas like paleo and primal eating, vegetarian and vegan diets. We strongly encourage students and graduates to share their knowledge by giving classes in their community, particularly to groups like children and the elderly. For example, ACHS graduate Lisa Powell gives wonderful classes on healthy cooking in the Portland area with titles like ‘Traditional Healing in the Kitchen.’ The more we can encourage Americans to eat real food and avoid ultra processed foods, the better.”
