  • Nutrition and physical conditioning
These areas of healthcare are experiencing a surge in policy changes and research advances, and we have pulled together an exciting group of speakers to help you stay current with the resulting changes in care delivery. We hope this clinical and legislative update will facilitate enhanced conversations with patients on the particularly sensitive topics above.
