“As you achieve milestones, don’t forget to celebrate yourselves along with your successes.” These were the words of Dr. Saadia Bean of the Family Intimacy Center who was honored during the College of Natural Health Sciences Bermuda’s July 6th, 2022 inaugural graduation and award ceremony, when associate of science degrees and certificates were handed out to students who studied and completed holistic health practice as well as the College’s Induction PREP Program. Dr. Bean received an honorary doctorate degree in natural health science in recognition of her transformative work in Bermudian society as a teacher, natural healer and therapist, an illustrious career that spans over five decades of service.
In her keynote address, Dr. Bean encouraged the students to continue to aim high in their studies as lifelong learners. “Today as a graduate, you are entering a new milestone. I ask you now: Are you aware that your life is taking you on one big adventure? One thing we know for sure, life continues offering us new milestones.”
Amongst the graduates were Cosette Durrant, an early childhood educator veteran who received her associate of science degree in Holistic Health Studies and Natthaporn Jutharlee, a therapeutic massage specialist, received her certificate of completion of the CNHS-BDA Induction PREP Program in Science and Functional Anatomy. Ms. Durrant will be furthering her studies in spiritual healing, while Natthaporn will be continuing her studies with CNHS-BDA to study Osteopathic Manual Therapy.
