Be a Health Mentor

"After 50 years of navigating the medical maze as a patient I realized that I had never taken the time to really think about what I thought worked and what needed fixing. And here I was with the opportunity to do it with some folks that one day will have a chance to do something about it! Very cool."                                                   

  -Kenneth Perry, Health Mentor
