A college is nothing without the team behind it. From the academic staff to everyone in administration and operations, each individual has their role to play in ensuring the best possible student experience. We are grateful everyday for the amazing team we have built at IHS and we thought you might like to get to know them a bit better. So we’ll be speaking to an IHS team member every month asking them a bit about what they do at IHS, how they got into the health and wellness industry and why they think you should be embarking on a career in this exciting field.
This months IHS favourite comes from Lin Ducker, unit leader and lecturer on our Diploma in Nutritional Therapy.

To help you survive, we have talked to our leading experts in Stress Management in the Institute of Health Sciences and put together some expert advice on sleep, nutrition and stress reducing techniques for you to practice at home.
