Health & Wellness: Healthy dating habits, mobility services, personalized health care, geology walk & history bicycling tour

Posted on February 11, 2020 at 6:00 am

Health and wellness are connected to many aspects of our lives. This winter and spring, we’ve partnered with organizations to touch on a variety of health and wellness topics that include mobility with public transportation, healthy dating for tweens, and precision medicine.

You’re also invited to explore two educational adventures while getting out and about around Spokane County. If geology and local history interest you, you won’t want to miss either event.
