Tuesdays 9:30am-11:30am – Park Hill United Methodist Church 5209 Montview Blvd.

“Preventive medicine is education, empowerment and personal responsibility”

former Surgeon General of the United States C. Everett Koop M.D.

Learn to make sense of alternative medicine and what it can do for you. According to a recent study funded by the National Institute on Aging, 65 percent (a higher percentage than any other group) of older adults said they used some form of alternative medicine they considered either curative or preventive. The most influential factor in the decision to use alternative health care is that people find that it works. Figure out for yourself what works and what doesn’t, and safely use alternative medicine in your own life.
