“The health care crisis is not going to be solved in Washington,” Dr. Kaiser said. “It’s going to be solved in our community through education, awareness, and people making lifestyle changes.”
Dr. Macioce added, “We work very hard outside of our offices in our communities to give people the tools they need to take back responsibility for their family’s health and well-being. We are extremely proud to be bringing these events to our towns.”
