Digestive Health Complex Clinical Cases

A Round-Table Discussion

For this round-table discussion, our five panelists will be reviewing complex digestive health cases, submitted by you or your peers, and providing their clinical expertise to assist you in navigating your patients' journey to health. This is an opportunity to gain exposure to complex clinical cases you may not have seen in your clinic.

This is not intended to be a coaching session, but rather is an opportunity to come together and learn as a community of healthcare professionals.

Although she still practices general family naturopathic medicine, naturopathic oncology and regenerative injection therapy, the main focus of her practice is in the proper diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease.
