Alternative Complementary Medicine Certificate
Today's health care system is evolving in its approach to the health and care of a culturally and ethnically diverse client population. In the United States, the aging population, an increasing public awareness of major risk factors contributing to chronic illness, and the public's growing desire for alternative health care options are just a few of the factors behind the expanding interest in complementary and integrative health. This accredited program will provide you with the knowledge and skills to effectively meet the needs of a diverse patient and client population in a wide range of careers. Today, opportunities exist in the fields of nursing, teaching, service, administration, and research. Opportunities also exist within government programs and agencies; public and private institutions that provide health, education, and social services; research centers; special interest groups; colleges and universities; and corporate human resources divisions.

In just six weeks, I'll share secrets, methods, and tips to help you generate income with your writing.

We'll embrace it!

Real Estate Investing
Have you ever heard the old saying, "Buy low, sell high?" News stories about the softening real estate market might scare away some novice investors. Experienced investors, however, recognize weak markets as opportunities to pick up bargains. When there are more sellers than buyers, your chances of getting a good deal go way up. In fact, many investors make more money in a down market than in a strong one. In many areas, now is the time to buy before prices start climbing again. In this course, you'll learn how to make money in any area, in good times and bad, even if you have little money to start with. Real Estate Investing includes specially designed worksheets and hands-on activities to take the guesswork out of your investing efforts.

You'll learn how to raise needed funds by discovering how and where to look for potential funders who are a good match for your organization.

This course speaks mainly to nonprofit organizations, schools, religious institutions, and municipalities seeking grants from foundation, corporate, government, and individual donors.
