The Bastyr approach to health integrates mind, body, spirit and nature. We reach out to the community around us - athletically, politically, educationally, nutritionally, both large and small in scale - to impact families, communities, entire populations. Maybe that's why our university president, Dr. Thomas Shepherd, calls Bastyr "a 'well' place to be, to work, to learn."
