We also typically have a broad range of health practitioners with complementary, integrative and natural approaches.”

One featured speaker/presenter this year is Greg Harris, founder of Hyperbaric Options, LLC, who has spoken publicly about health and wellness over the past eight years. Harris will explore the history, benefits and science of hyperbaric therapy.
