HOLISTIC HEALTH: Academy Strives for First Accreditation
The Ohio Academy of Holistic Health Inc. aims to be the first training center of its type to secure accreditation from a national board, a coveted distinction that is expected to boost attendance at the school, the Dayton-Miami Valley Business News reports. The academy has been chasing the accreditation for about 12 years. The "crucial" distinction granted by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training allows OAH students to apply for financial aid through Title IV funds from the U.S. Department of Education. Already one of the few holistic training schools with state approval, students from all over the country have flocked to the program -- 300 have graduated since its 1987 founding and another 200 are currently enrolled. Those figures are expected to spike 200% as early as January, when the academy anticipates the accreditation from the national board (Fox, 5/17).This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
