Our experts will discuss joint pain and treatment options, and will provide you with time for your questions about joint pain and joint treatments.
Lisa Hellem’s presentation will cover the top five ways to lose weight through nutrition, explain the hows and whys of weight loss, and provide nutrition basics.
