Featured speaker Dr. Jane Kurucz will provide information about the Paleo Diet, which is based upon modern everyday foods that mimic the food groups of our preagricultural, hunter-gatherer ancestors and are believed to help optimize overall health, minimize the risk of chronic disease and support weight loss.

Dr. Kurucz is a former breast cancer surgeon of 20 years and now focuses her efforts to help patients and others improve their health and achieve such goals as hormonal balance, disease prevention and treatment of chronic conditions such as diabetes and obesity. A certified diplomat of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, a certified Hospice Medical Director and a member of the Institute for Functional Medicine, Dr. Kurucz brings a breadth of expertise and knowledge in the area of wellness.
