This year's College of Natural Health Sciences Bermuda's annual White Tunic Ceremony was marked by four international students being inducted into the Osteopathic Manual Therapy Level 1 program. Nongnuch Manajit, Nattida Pannok, Natthaporn Jutharlee, and Kulab Prapawesang, flanked by family and friends, recited the natural healthcare pledge to uphold the core values and standards of care that is consistent with holism, integrity, and humaneness. Recent CNHSBDA Graduate Cosette Durrant addressed the inductees, encouraging them to not give up, despite how intense the program can be.
Dr. Delcina Bean-Burrows, as she wholeheartedly welcomed each inductee, described the significance of the White Tunic Ceremony from the perspective of the event and the uniform. "The White Tunic Ceremony serves as a rite of passage towards becoming a fully trained clinician. The white tunic serves as a symbol of each inductees commitment to uphold the duties and trust placed in them as caring professionals. The black trousers and/or skirt is a symbol of confidentiality, professionalism, and strength. The combined uniform is worn as a statement of altruism, responsibility, and compassion. "
On behalf of the CNHSBA Trustees and faculty we extend a very warm welcome and best wishes to all our inductees for a successful school year!"

Small but tangible steps to preserve good health can be taken everyday. An example of a small step that reaps big benefits is adopting a healthy mindset. Positive thoughts help to generate healthful body chemistry. Threats to thinking positively are always present. With practice, we can train our minds to counter negative thoughts with positive thoughts. Positive thoughts help to diffuse stress and fuel energy levels.
