Workshops Offered

Community out-reach program

As a way of giving back, we offer a community out-reach program which includes free workshops and seminars in our office and at locations throughout our local community. Our goal is to educate our community members about their health concerns, nutrition and how they can improve their health and overall quality of life.

Our Doctors have held lectures and workshops at People’s Pharmacy, Curves, The Crossings (now Travaasa Spa), Riverplace Country Club, The Texas Lyme Disease Association and The Herb Bar.

If you are interested in one of our Workshops please contact us in advance, as we have limited workshops available each quarter.

Each of these programs are focused specifically to the group we are working with. Each member
of the audience will receive specific steps and information to help them make beneficial changes.
