Do you miss connecting in person with like-minded practitioners? Join us for this special format HUB style Grand Rounds! When you register, look for a “hub” location from which you can network and stream with a small group of practitioners. From the same location, you’ll network, discuss cases, and enjoy lunch. Don’t see a hub near you? Stream from home or let us know if you want to host one when you sign up! We’ll connect you with others nearby.

Our Saturday starts at 9am with morning coffee & networking chat and ends with time for you to be a part of a practitioner case-solving team (possibly of your case?)!

His hands-on approach is evident at ZRT Laboratory— renowned for the way it supports people and their health on a personal level.
