"Bone Builders", Tuesday, May 5, 12:00 - 1:00 p.m., Building 30, Room 114 (date changed from April 21)
Contrary to popular belief, simply drinking milk is not enough to keep bones healthy. Perhaps that misconception is why 10 million Americans have osteoporosis today. The good news is that bones are living, changing tissue that respond to bone building care throughout life. Make lifelong bone health easier by understanding bones and their lifecycle. Join Yaakov Levine from Natural Grocers for this seminar. Sign-up by contacting Wendy Simmons.
