Herbal Academy graduates have a new hope in ‘The Meyerowitz Stories’
Herbal and science academies across the country are trying to turn around the fortunes of students struggling to stay afloat amid the opioid epidemic.
As part of the effort, students at some of the country’s oldest and most prestigious programs have been able to take classes at schools like Georgetown University and the University of Maryland.
Now the schools are using the new opportunity to offer courses in natural healing.
The Georgetown and University of Baltimore Natural Healing Academies, for example, have offered courses at the school’s School of Oriental and African Studies, the University at Albany, and the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
At Georgetown, which has more than 5,000 students, the academy’s Director of Student Success and Wellness, David Schmitz, said the initiative has helped to change the culture of the school, which had been closed to students for the past six months.
Students were told to enroll in the natural healing academy to help with the crisis, and Schmitchz said they’ve been overwhelmed with the support they’ve received.
“The natural healing community has embraced us, and they’ve done it in a very, very positive way,” Schmit.
“They’ve come to our house and talked about it, and that has been incredibly helpful.”
The Baltimore Natural Health Academy, which offers a master of natural healing program, is also offering courses at other schools, including the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Johns School of Advanced International Studies, which offer courses at both the medical school and the law school.
The programs have not been without their critics.
Last month, the Washington Post reported that the Baltimore academy was not meeting the standards required for certification, despite its claims to the contrary.
But the academy has gained recognition as one of the best natural healing academies in the country, and it has even received federal money to help students who otherwise would not have the chance to attend.
The school has also received national support for its efforts.
In March, President Donald Trump signed a $20 million funding agreement with the U.S. Department of Education that includes $6 million for the natural medicine academy, and $1.9 million to cover the costs of its teacher training programs.
And the academy is expected to receive a grant of up to $50,000 from the Department of Veterans Affairs to help it expand its student population.
The academy has also been able as part of its partnership with the University Health Network to provide grants to students who qualify for it, according to Schmitts wife, Barbara.
The academy has provided $8 million to help the university’s medical school graduate students, and another $8.5 million to pay for training and medical school programs for its graduate students.
