Description

The Maine Nutrition Council presents their annual conference:
Eat for the Health of it!

Keynote Speaker: Saray Stancic, MD, is the founder of Stancic Health & Wellness in Ramsey, NJ, a unique and innovative practice whose mission is to educate and empower patients to achieve optimal health via lifestyle modification.
