As another year comes to a close, many people reflect on the months behind them and consider what they’d like to change as they move into the year ahead.
In that spirit, we decided to take a look back at the advice given in these pages over the past year. The PartnerMD team has discussed a variety of issues, from sugar and gluten to stress relief and warding off colds.
PartnerMD doctors are known for their medical expertise, their sensible approach and the time they spend with clients, and, based on their best advice throughout the year, they are also ready with memorable, motivating words of wisdom. Take their advice to heart, and raise a (moderate) glass to a healthy and happy 2020.
