Filling the information gap
“When it comes to vitamins, herbs and minerals, consumers need reliable and timely information,” said Dr. Mimi Guarneri, founder of Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine and one of the event’s presenters. “This program is a great place for people to do their homework and get answers.”
The Natural Supplements School will help attendees understand the basics of supplements, including how to interpret product labels and claims. It will also explore the use of supplements for pain, inflammation, fatigue and heart conditions. The program will conclude with a panel discussion and question-and-answer session. Attendees will receive informational materials to take home.
