Born in Grifswald (Grisvalt), Germany, and raised in Alberta, Canada, Alfred was exposed to the power of naturopathic medicine in his childhood. After a career change in the '80's he completed his pre-med program at the University of Alberta. In 1990, Alfred graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto, and later that year passed the Ontario provincial licensing exams.
Until his busy practice made it impractical, Alfred taught Nutrition and Nutritional Biochemistry at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. For many years he continued to work at the College teaching and supervising 4th year clinicians.
Alfred Hauk has served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Naturopathic Association, the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors and the Board of Governors of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine.
He is a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND), the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND), and is a professional member of the Institute of Naturopathic Education and Research (INER, the institute that operates CCNM and the Schad Naturopathic Clinic, the on-site teaching clinic at the college.)
His many years of family practice have been an educational and fulfilling journey that has allowed him to help others with the tools of Naturopathic Medicine. Alfred resides in Brantford with his wife Paulette and their 4 children; Ryan, Sean, Trevor and Tyler.
