NUHS Grads Featured in News Segment on Healing Power of Touch

Two NUHS massage therapy grads, Janet Ziegler ('09) and Dorothy Topounova ('09), were featured in a recent news segment on the healing power of touch.

The best news is that Janet Zeigler also teaches in the massage therapy program at NUHS, offering a class on healing touch for special populations, including massage therapy in hospice settings.
