Created and directed by Dr. Matthews , Point Loma Nazarene University’s Master of Kinesiology in Integrative Wellness program prepares professionals to provide a whole-person approach to health and wellness by designing, delivering and effectively collaborating with other professionals in the implementation of evidence-based lifestyle interventions that optimize well-being and prevent and manage chronic diseases.
