Functional Forum RVA April 8th Meetup

Functional Forum RVA is happy to welcome Kristin Andrs, NP, Integrative Nurse Practitioner and owner of Andrs Wellness Consulting, for a presentation on Lyme Disease. As a leader in the treatment of Lyme here in Central Virginia, Kristin has a wealth of information to share on this important topic.

We continue to hear more and more about the growing concerns over the spread of Lyme Disease and the complications with diagnosing and treating Lyme as well as other related co-infections. As we enter into the warmer weather months when exposure is more prevelent, the more we can learn about Lyme Disease as patients and practitioners, the better. We hope you'll join us and spread the word about Kristin's presentation.
