Stefanie works hands-on with individuals and groups seeking a healthier way of eating. For companies and organizations looking to do the right thing for their consumers and environment, Stefanie is the go-to-gal—her unique background in food and agriculture as well as health and wellness gives her the knowledge and skills to guide groups towards true food transparency, sustainability and ultimately health as a consultant, speaker and media expert.
Stefanie will also lead a panel discussion on "Personalized Nutritional and Exercise Prescription for the CMT/IPN Patient."
How many times have you heard...
