“While pursuing my bachelor’s degree [at] Everglades University, it has been invaluable to me as a small business owner and herbalist seeking to advance my expertise in alternative medicine, particularly herbal medicine. The alternative medicine program has provided me with a solid foundation and equipped me with the necessary skills to make informed decisions in my business and continuing education. Being on the Dean’s list for multiple semesters has been a great honor, and the greatest asset to this degree program has been learning how to incorporate evidence-based research to support general alternative health claims. I am extremely grateful for the guidance and support of Doctors such as Professor Klosky and Professor Jomsky”
