From time to time, among our faithful clients, we receive inquiries about internship at our wellness center. We have recently accepted a very motivated and brilliant young man who is keenly interested in learning all about natural herbs, their applications and holistic approaches to health. As you will see from his personal bio below, he is properly balanced in his objectivity to learning about natural and pharmaceutical approaches in his pursuit towards a medical doctor degree. In doing so, he will be well equipped in dealing with health concerns from a causative and do-no-harm point of view.
We are privileged that he is open to accept from us a role of influence in his career. It is our belief, he is on the right track to becoming a new generation of doctors and health professionals that will do things “differently”. Hopefully in that process, we all would have played a small role in our attempt to improve the health and wellness of our local community and country one person at a time.
Jeff will be contributing to many wellness related blogs in the future on this site on a variety of important health topics relevant to everyone. So, stay tuned by checking back with us often….
