    Hey, hey, hey---what is UP, my homey and fellow Buckeye! Glad to see another forum member from the 'hood!
    Dunno how much they do with herbalism, but you might check out the American Institute of Alternative Medicine, web site www.aiam.edu I know that they have classes in acupuncture and massage therapy. The school is holding an open house on November 8th from 9:30-11:30 a.m.---might be a good opportunity to see what they've got.---I think that this school is located on the north side of Rt. 161.

    Bastyr University. Not their entire focus but

    A bachelor of science degree completion program* with a major in herbal sciences is designed to provide a thorough, scientifically rigorous and inspiring exploration of herbalism and its applications.
