Faculty Overview

Gilda Rovan, Lynne Hinton and Marlene Marshall have over 60 years, collectively, of front line experience in the field of Holistic Nutrition.  They are each in clinical practice and are continuously taking courses and educating themselves on the latest nutritional research in order to ensure that their knowledge and the Webinar information are both relevant and current.  Together they have worked as a team to inspire and educate practitioners and students since the inception of the Nutritional Preceptorship Program in 1997.


Lynne and Marlene are owners and operators of the Edison Institute of Nutrition and Gilda works with them as a member of EIN’s Faculty as Curriculum Advisor and Instructor. The Edison Institute of Nutrition was established in 1996. EIN is an International Holistic Nutrition school, training nutrition professionals worldwide! The online comprehensive Diploma in Holistic Nutrition Program  is the most in-depth education curriculum with content that is not available through any other holistic nutrition program.. Their curriculum combines the latest scientific research with ageless truths practised by traditional societies.


By sharing their experiences, techniques, successes, and protocols as Natural Nutritional Practitioners, these clinical experts will help you gain confidence in your own practice.

Why Educate through Webinars?

The ability to study from the comfort of your own home!


Through our own clinical practices, we realized the power and necessity of continuing education. Not all cities had the wealth of seminars, lectures, and trade shows that were available to us. Throughout the years, we were continually asked by students and practitioners in small cities and towns if our seminars were taped so that they could be shared. 


So, in response, NPP Webinars was born. 


Each Webinar is approximately 2 hours in length, allows you unlimited viewing for 90 days, and offers printable handouts and continuing education Certificates of Attendance. Our lectures include extensive information on each topic and suggested dietary, lifestyle, and nutritional protocols. The cost is minimal at $30 for most of our presentations. Many include free previews for you to view in advance of purchase. You will also be able to access some free Webinars. We are here to support you in becoming even better practitioners and in achieving optimal health for yourself and your family through nutrition.
