This intimate, candid portrayal of a family struck by pediatric brain cancer describes their remarkable journey to health, wholenes, and happiness.
Part II (10:30am – 11:30am): Networking: We switch gears by telling the group who we are and what we do. This is a great opportunity for bringing your business cards, fliers and brochures, meeting other practitioners in our area, and sharing how we each uniquely support our community's health and well being. Everyone gets a chance to speak.
You are cordially invited to come and bring a friend with you to attend either or both parts of this gathering. Light refreshments are delightfully served and Networking continues after our presentations.
