As we get ready to publish the Fit After Fifty multimedia eBook, we’re curious to hear your thoughts regarding this concept. And, do you think we might be on the right track toward implementing it?
If you work in some facet of the healthcare industry–physician, administrator, physical therapist, etc.–we’ve created a special survey for you: HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL SURVEY.
Thanks for your continued support and interest! (Military-specific survey coming soon!!)
