Chances are, you have strong opinions one way or the other. But listen in to this forthright conversation to see if some of your own beliefs aren’t challenged, and hopefully improved, from this conversation. With Dr. Joe Kepo’o.
Dawn Phillips describes herself as “Carrot-pusher, voracious reader of health literature, refugee from the tech world, and nice person.” She is at the cutting edge of Integrative Medicine.
