We have all of our clinics in August. Then we have no clinics in September and begin full on in October returning to our weekly speakers programs, clinics and some new clinics! We are eager to hear your suggestions for Speakers Program topics!

To reserve a space at any of our clinics, please send an email to pamela(at) with your name and clinic request.

The summer is whizzing by! For those out of the area now, we encourage you to plan now for your return including a good travelers insurance policy. We do not sell insurance but work with a couple of reps and can send some options. Please send on any and all insurance-related questions.

Let's have a chat! If you would like a one-on-one chat, I am happy to do this. We can discuss and create a good healthcare plan for you - from insurance information to emergency services. No charge of course! Just send an email.

Healthcare Resources is more than happy to do a presentation to your group (condo owners, social club, whatever!) covering any and all healthcare related topics. But we are attempting to work on the "high season" calendar now so, if you are interested in this for your particular group, please contact me in the next month or so. No charge, of course, and we can create the topic(s) for whatever you want!

We are already scheduling our weekly speakers programs for the Fall/Winter. There is never a charge to attend. But - if you have a business and would like to "sponsor" one of our programs it is a great way to "get your word out." You can have flyers/cards available, perhaps supply a snack for the attendees, and I will introduce you to the group at the beginning of our program so you can describe your business. Please let me know if you are interested in sponsoring a speaker's program.

We hope that you are enjoying your summer months, wherever you are! We are here for all of your healthcare needs.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please let me know.

Happy August & September!
