Summer is a Time to Explore

Tree In Summertime

It’s hard not to be happy this time of year. The warmer temperatures, longer daylight hours and increased exposure to fresh air make summer the best time to connect with nature and natural health. Here are a few ways you can do so, courtesy of Bastyr University.

City of Kenmore Summer Concert Series

Bastyr is a proud sponsor of the city of Kenmore’s annual summer concert series at neighboring Saint Edward State Park from July 10-August 14, 2014. These six free Thursday evening performances are sure to bring out the crowds, and are a great chance to meet your neighbors.

Admissions Open House

If you have ever thought about attending Bastyr University and joining the most intelligent, hard-working group of natural health scholars in the country, now is the perfect time to learn more. For the first time, we will be hosting a Summer Open House on August 2 at our Kenmore campus. Experience Bastyr the way a student might and meet with our admissions experts to have your questions answered. That the campus grounds are spectacular in the summer is just an added bonus.

San Diego Campus Turns Two

This fall we will welcome the third class of naturopathic students to our California campus. This will mark two years of existence for the San Diego campus. What is especially exciting is that our inaugural class of students are now training as clinicians at Bastyr University Clinic, delivering high-quality Team Care to patients, under the supervision of faculty experts. Learn about our new clinic rates and schedule an appointment with one of our teams today.

Special Deals at Bastyr Center

Right now is also great time to visit our Seattle teaching clinic, Bastyr Center for Natural Health.  Summer specials include our popular $20 Well-Child Visits (which include a free bottle of children’s vitamins) as well as $15 Counseling Visits. Both deals run through the end of August, so make sure you take advantage of these top-notch clinical services for a discounted price. In September and October, we will also offer $20 visits for college students.

New Ayurvedic Services

Our patients in Seattle will also benefit from a brand new service offered at Bastyr Center: ayurvedic medicine. This 5,000-year-old medical tradition from India will begin in Team Care this fall, with advanced students in our Master of Science in Ayurvedic Sciences program delivering care to patients under faculty supervision. To celebrate this new service, we will offer a special introductory rate for Team Care ayurvedic visits, as well as present a free Living Naturally talk September 13 on “How Ayurvedic Medicine Can Help You.” We hope you’ll join us.

Here’s to a season of healthy new discoveries!
