FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Responding to increased demand, effective immediately, the National Institute of Whole Health is opening their military scholarship program to all spouses of active military personnel.
December 20, 2010, Wellesley, MA — The National Institute of Whole Health (http://www.niwh.org), pioneers of Whole Health Education® and Whole Person Health Care™, today announced that all military spouses, regardless of their partners military grade, are now eligible for the National Institute of Whole Health’s (NIWH) military scholarship program. The scholarship can be used towards any one of NIWH’s educational programs. Originally intended only for MyCAA eligible spouses, the program has been expanded to accommodate increased need for educational opportunities.
“Since announcing the scholarship a few months ago, we have been inundated with calls by military spouses who want to participate, but do not qualify for MyCAA benefits,” said Dr. Georgianna Donadio, Program Director for NIWH. “The original intention behind the scholarship program was to assist in providing demystified whole health information for the people who need it most. Given the response we’ve had over the past months, it is clear to us that this need exists for a much wider military spouse audience.”
The millions of U.S. military spouses can now partake in NIWH’s $1,000 scholarship. This automatic scholarship is good towards NIWH certification programs—the Whole Health Educator, Whole Health for Nurses, Whole Health Nutrition Educator and Whole Health Coaching™ certifications. For health, allied health and education professionals, the programs enable military spouses to enrich their existing education with knowledge of “the whole picture of health” ® for career advancement. Spouses are able to train to care for the whole person, addressing not just the physical aspect of health, but also the emotional, nutritional, environmental and spiritual.
Participants can also elect to enroll in NIWH’s whole health certificate of study programs and receive a scholarship equal to 20% off the standard tuition. The NIWH Family Health Advocate Certificate of Study, Whole Health and Wellness Certificate of Study and the Health and Wellness Coaching Certificate of Study are open to all non-credentialed students for personal health enrichment. These programs were uniquely designed to assist military families in supporting their own member’s personal health needs, addressing many of the health concerns effecting active military soldiers today, including post-traumatic stress conditions and brain injuries.
NIWH courses are delivered through a relationship-centered, whole-person health focused program and are designed to empower the learner and their clients with demystified health information to take greater control over their health and wellbeing. In addition, all courses are video-based and streamed online from anywhere in the world, providing ideal accommodations for frequently moving military families.
