COPPELL, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 4, 2012--
Registration is now officially open for the “Nutrition
and Personal Health Coaching” course designed by the Department of
Nutrition and Food Sciences at Texas Woman’s University (TWU), with
input from Mannatech scientists. Mannatech,

an award-winning developer and provider of technologically and
scientifically advanced health, weight and fitness, and skin care

personal improvement as well as for wellness coaches looking for ways to
effectively help their clients.
This science-based course was designed to meet the growing demand of
both health professionals and members of the general public who are
eager to learn more about health and nutrition and discover how to
implement this knowledge in realistic ways into their daily lives. With
this curriculum, individuals can bolster their wellness business and/or
overall knowledge about nutrition, integrative
health, supplements and achieving a healthier lifestyle.
The highly qualified members of the TWU faculty bring a diverse array
of training and nutrition-based backgrounds to the program. Dr.
Chandan Prasad, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Nutrition
and Food Sciences at TWU, spent several years at the National Institutes
of Health, was a Professor and Vice Chairman in the Department of
Medicine at Louisiana State University, has authored/co-authored over
200 papers in the area of nutrition, and holds three U.S. and

faculty members who will teach this exciting, informative course.
As part of TWU’s curriculum Dr. Rob Sinnott, Co-CEO and Chief

Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) of 1994. Upon completion of
this 45-hour, university-level program, participants will earn a
