If staying well is a state of mind, Healthy Conversations challenges your mind to stay healthy! Join us for three enlightening, engaging evenings of presentations by leading local experts on health and wellness.

Support for this series provided by Junia Oliansky.

Paul Offit, MD, will discuss his latest book, which The Philadelphia Inquirer praised as “honest and fair, fails to leave any stone unturned… a fabulous book that’s well worth the read.” Dr. Offit is the Director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia as well as a Professor of Vaccinology and a Professor of Pediatrics at University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine. A recipient of many awards who has published over 150 papers in medical and scientific journals, Dr. Offit is co-inventor of the rotavirus vaccine, RotaTeq, and the author of six acclaimed medical books.

Join us for the fall’s other two Healthy Conversations:

December 9 – Alzheimer’s Awareness & Advances
