New Topics in the New Year

When The Doctor Is In returns in January you can count on more interesting and valuable discussions that center on healthy aging-all with a question and answer period so you can get additional information based on your personal experience.

And in the Meantime. . .

We hope you enjoy the upcoming holiday season and we look forward to seeing you at The Doctor Is In on the last Wednesday of January and every other month in 2015.

Next meeting: Wednesday, January 28, 2015, 9:00 a.m.
Where: Patrick Henry Mall, Food Court

The Doctor Is In meets at 9 a.m. in the Food Court (near the fireplace) of Patrick Henry Mall on the last Wednesday of each month.
