Envision a World That Embraces the Healing Power of Nature

Transforming Philanthropy

 “The prevention of disease today is one of the most important factors in the line of human endeavor.” This statement was made by Dr. Charles Mayo in 1913. Today, more than 100 years later, less than 5 percent of America’s healthcare dollars are spent on prevention!

The time has come to learn more about how primary prevention efforts impact the most prevalent chronic diseases afflicting humanity today. The place is Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, where our team of dedicated staff and faculty focus on improved nutrition, regular exercise and stress management.  

Philanthropy ensures that each graduating class of naturopathic physicians is the best and the brightest – through exceptional academic education, unrivaled clinical training and community leadership. Transforming philanthropy takes a community of friends and alumni who share SCNM’s vision and deep commitment to innovation and excellence, making SCNM the best naturopathic medical school.

What does a philanthropic gift mean to SCNM students and patients?  It means that:

… our students have the opportunity to reach the highest level of academic achievement through closely supervised clinical training by licensed physicians;

… SCNM can engage in community partnerships serving medically underserved children and their families;

… we can maintain a center where students enjoy the highest standard of learning technologies, a state-of-the-art library and enhanced learning experiences;

… the finest in patient care!
