We want this to be a group that encourages questions and discussion. Topics will be driven by the interests of group members.”
On March 6, the group will bring in guest speaker Linda Appelgren, Dietitian, Mercy Hospital, to talk about nutrition. On April 3, Dr. Stottler will return to discuss fitness for women.
