vitality and longevity through the education of healthy lifestyles, fitness, proper nutrition and preventive medicine strategies. We seek to help identify and reduce risk factors linked
to diabetes, heart disease and other chronic diseases in undeserved populations and raise
cancer and mental health awareness.
Our motto is "let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." (Hippocrates, The Father of Medicine)
