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.

Personalizing Your Health Care
Though it may feel like health care is one size fits all, our genes, lifestyles, and environment make each of us, and our health, unique. Precision medicine approaches health care in a way that incorporates our individualism. This session will help you be a more active participant in your health and communicate most effectively with your doctor and medical team.
