HEAL: Change your body. Change your mind. Change your health.
Monday, May 6, 2019 at 7 pm
DESCRIPTION

"We are not victims of our DNA but rather our DNA is a blueprint; and how our genes will be expressed, or not, is based on our choices and our beliefs."

With over 133 million people in the U.S. suffering from chronic illness, Director Kelly Noonan Gore's documentary film HEAL offers possibility and hope, meant to inspire, empower and inform. HEAL presents both scientific evidence and spiritual perspectives while telling the stories of people who have overcome chronic diseases and pain by investing in practices and therapies that support the body's inherent ability to regenerate.

Join the conversation as we go beyond the film. Following the 55-minute film there will be a panel & audience discussion moderated by Dr. Lucy Gade.
