Bastyr University

Bastyr University was established as the John Bastyr College of Naturopathic Medicine in 1978 in Seattle, Washington (USA). It is named for the late John Bastyr, ND, DC (1912-1995), a pioneering naturopathic physician and chiropractor in the Seattle area who was instrumental in keeping interest in naturopathic medicine alive during the dark years of the 1940s-1960s. The school was later renamed Bastyr College and then Bastyr University in recognition of the fact that it has many programs besides naturopathic medicine now including acupuncture, nutrition, exercise science, herbal therapy, counseling, and leadership. It is now located in the Juanita neighborhood of Kenmore, Washington.
