We are excited to be offering our new professional pathways webinar series this October! Especially during this pandemic when the future seems uncertain, we want to give you the opportunity to hear from successful holistic practitioners and ask questions about how they got to where they are today.

Whether you are a practitioner, or a student who aims to be one in the future, we hope you'll join us for our three-part professional development webinar series. In Parts I & II, hear inspirational stories and real-world advice from ACHS student and graduate business owners and our expert faculty who will help illuminate pathways to success for holistic health practitioners.
