Virtual Mentoring Calls

We are pleased to offer this free service to our students and graduates as a way of providing ongoing support and guidance. These calls will be hosted by Dr. Ed Bauman himself and are designed to help support your efforts in the field of nutrition and holistic culinary arts. Send questions to Dr. Bauman in advance of the call for the chance to have them answered, or simply call in to join the conversation. Hear real time experiences from others in the field, get answers to questions you may not know you even had, and unite with like-minded professionals to receive personal support.

Virtual Mentoring calls will be on the first Wednesday of each month and will begin at 6:00 pm.

Please send your clinical or business questions to Dr. Bauman for review. He will select timely questions to respond to and then open the call for discussion.

Visit the Bauman College Community Forum for details, to submit your questions, and to RSVP.

If your schedule does not permit your participation in the call please remember calls are recorded and will be posted here.

Round Table Events

We offer a quarterly Round Table Event series where students, alumni, and industry professionals come together to network, receive guidance on how to build their business, and to support each other as like-minded professionals. It’s an amazing opportunity for networking and business development for all students, past and present.
