Corporate Health Talks
Dr. Kelley is available to speak to your employees, group, or organization!
As a family wellness chiropractor, Dr. Kelley has spent years educating her patients so they can make better choices to improve their lives and the lives of their families. But her commitment to wellness education does not stop there! Dr. Kelley believes that, while change begins with the individual, it must also occur on a larger scale in order to impact the community. That’s why she donates her time to provide FREE health talks for businesses and organizations.
Our society has become information-rich…but common-sense-poor. Dr. Kelley has designed her classes to provide people with the skills they need to think critically about information and make educated decisions…not ones based on marketing tactics or fear. Educated and empowered consumers can lead to healthier (and happier) people in the workplace and in the community.
Most classes are fit into a one-hour time-frame, including the introduction, content, and questions. This could be the hour that changes your life…or the life of one of your employees!
