Philosophy Of Medicine

“And while I feel that educating patients on their condition(s) is important and having them exercise is essential as well, giving them that social support that they may not otherwise have outside of class or their training session, can aid in preventing them from reverting back to their previous health condition(s) and ultimately help with their long-term success.”
