Meet the Experts

As we mentioned in our post this morning about the upcoming Mommy Morning Out, we are so excited to bring you a panel of leading health and wellness experts from the Iowa City and surrounding communities.  It probably goes without saying, but Iowa City is home to some of the top doctors and health professionals in the country, and we are thrilled to welcome them on Saturday morning to share their knowledge with you!  And don’t forget…after the panel presents their information, there will also be time for you to ask questions.  So, bring any and all questions that you may have, as this is a rare and awesome opportunity!

And so, without further ado, meet the experts.
