“I chose the NTA after carefully researching several schools since I had formerly attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition for my Health Coach certification, I knew that I wanted to dive much deeper into the science of nutrition and how to more specifically help my clients confidently. I wanted to be able to speak in a clinical setting with doctors, and have the tools and background to stay up to date on the latest studies, to feel purposeful in what I teach to my audience and clients. After chatting with former graduates of the NTA and familiarizing myself more with the curriculum, I knew this was the one. It was also a major benefit to be accredited by NANP, which further proved out the legitimacy to me since there are so many schools popping up now and it can be confusing!”Alison Marras, NTC
