MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
The College of Natural Health Sciences-Bermuda (CNHS-BDA), a subsidiary of Health Tech Renaissance, is a private vocational college that was founded on a firm commitment to provide affordable, high quality educational opportunities in the fields of natural health science. As founder and president of CNHS-BDA, I strongly believe that the key to addressing many of Bermuda’s health management challenges is to increase the availability of local natural health practitioners who can effectively promote prevention and wellness. With the help of my life experiences, clinical skills, and vast expertise in areas such as osteopathy, osteopathic clinical rehabilitation, occupational therapy, naturopathy, botanical medicine, aromatherapy, reflexology, acupressure, and physical medicine and rehabilitation, comprehensive natural health programs were subsequently designed. The combination of modern technology and practical training that CNHS-BDA utilizes now makes it possible for students who lack the financial resources to study abroad to be able to pursue higher education in Bermuda at a fraction of the usual cost.
It is my sincere hope that you will choose CNHS-BDA to begin or continue your life long journey of learning and to develop your career as a natural health practitioner. On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the faculty please accept our sincere thanks and our very warm welcome for considering our school.

CNHS-BDA is a registered training facility with the Alliance for Complementary Therapists [ACT].
Agenda 2023 is an ambitious plan set by CNHS-BDA in collaboration with the Bermuda Osteopathy Association and the Bermuda Natural Health Practitioners Association to grow the local population of osteopaths, naturopaths, and naturopathic therapists by 6% by the year 2023. The rationale behind this agenda is that as the number of natural health practitioners per parish rises, wellness and overall health improvements per parish population should also rise proportionately.
