Rather than continue the Naturopathic Principles this week,
since this is most likely my final Thanksgiving here, I want to
share what I am thankful for both here at NUHS and in my life.
Thank you all for indulging me this week.
Happy Thanksgiving from the Naturopathic Interns of the NUHS
Whole Health Center - Lombard!
Just a few things that I am thankful for...
- The privilege of attending naturopathic medical school at
- The basic sciences curriculum, which is rigorous and prepares
- Dr. Sue Darby and Dr. Robert Humphreys for being relentless in
- Janse Pond, where I sat and studied many days.
- Dr. Fraser Smith and Dr. James Winterstein for their dedication
to rebuilding and accrediting our school in record time!
- Again, Dr. Fraser Smith, for being willing to listen to student
concerns regarding the program and its future.
- Our clinicians at the NUHS Whole Health Center, who listen to
our treatment plans and ideas and give us the leeway (with a safety
net) to help our patients to the best of our ability!
- Tony, Mark, Tom, Tom, Tony, Tony, Frank, Shelby and Marilyn!
You make EVERY day a joy on this campus!
- Bob, Mary Ann, Mark and Sharon of Financial Aid! Your help with
planning and budgeting is priceless...what a pun!
- The entire faculty and staff at NUHS, especially Marie Olbrysh
and the Communications staff for allowing this forum for students
to openly share their experiences at NUHS.
In my life...
- That both of my parents are still with us and 'on the
- My three sisters back home who are sharing care duties for my
- My family and friends of many years.
- Lauren, whom I wouldn't have met without being at NUHS. You
make me happy, dear!
- Those who have helped with life lessons that have put me
exactly where I am today!
- Self-sustainable skills and traits learned from my parents
while growing up.
That just about does it this week! Hope each of you has a
wonderful Thanksgiving and are with the ones you love! I'll
continue next week with the Naturopathic Principles.
