A Health and Wellness Series: 2019

2019 is right around the corner. Can you believe it?! We can’t. But we’re also really excited for what’s coming up. If you’re familiar with the Dempsey|Phelps team, you  know we like to do client events several times a year. But in 2019, we’re partnering with a few amazing locals to give our clients a full series experience.

We’re kicking this off on December 5 to gather questions from the people who matter most – YOU GUYS. We want to find out what are the important things to you as you consider your health in regards to nutrition, body mechanics and skin. Then we’ll take all those questions and put together our series launching in January.

So, what’s this series going to look like? Well, we have three incredible professionals who will be discussing all those health topics we’re wondering about in the back of our minds. There will be one in January, February and March, keeping us focused as we cruise our way into the new year.

January will be focused on nutrition and led by a local Dietitian Nutritionist.
