The ceremony featured guest speaker Rex Miller, an international award-winning author and respected futurist. Mr. Miller discussed the broken health care system and the power graduates will have to fix it. During his speech, he presented the graduates with "weapons" they could arm themselves to help heal others, including a positive mindset, self-esteem, relationships with others, resilience, and a sense of accomplishment. "You need to be equipped differently than other health care professionals," said Mr. Miller. 

Eric Mai, Kimiko Shimoda, Nicholas Schmidlkofer, and Jessica Lynn Peterson, valedictorians of the Bachelor of Science, Oriental Medicine, Chiropractic Medicine, and Naturopathic Medicine programs, respectively delivered inspiring addresses to their fellow graduates.

Describing three road trips taken by himself and NUHS personnel, President Joseph Stiefel's closing remarks shared important life lessons about perspective, values, and attitudes. He told graduates not to ask tough questions if they are not prepared to hear honest answers, no matter how difficult the truth may be. On life's journey, President Stiefel also reminded graduates that there will be inevitable bumps in the road, but one can successfully navigate them by always keeping their attention focused ahead. 

Congratulations and best wishes for a bright future to our new graduates!
