Nearly 400 people attended the Institute for Integrative Health's first In Good Health Holiday Market & Wellness to shop, learn, and support our community programs on Saturday, November 18, 2017. The event featured a VIP breakfast, handmade gifts from local artisans and retailers, natural personal care products, a gluten-free cooking demonstration by Jules Shepard from gfJules, and wellness talks by health and wellness experts. 

In the weeks since the event, we've received requests for recordings of speakers' presentations. So, for those people who missed this groundbreaking event but still want to hear the wonderful speakers, you're in luck. We recorded many of the presentations, and over the next few weeks, we'll proudly post them here on our blog.
