This collection contains material about coaching, leadership, health literacy, motivational techniques, change management, health education, public health, psychology, and sociology.

Herbal Medicine

Boasting the James Duke collection and a wide array of herbal materia medica from cultures across North America and around the world, our rich collection of materials is among the finest on the East Coast.

Integrative Health Studies

This collection includes access to journals and articles across multiple complementary health approaches along with Integrative Health focused journals. 


Works in support of this program include standard nutrition journals with access to additional articles through our EBSCO databases such as Food Science Source. Material on the healing properties of food, health conditions, and recipes are a highlight of this collection.

Yoga Therapy

As yoga therapy is such a new field, this program is currently best served by contemporary articles from our EBSCO databases. We continue to grow our media on yoga and ayurveda in close coordination with the yoga therapy program faculty.
