10/23 – Head of surgery at ACCES – Dr Tamara Walker! TONS of great info!

I really enjoyed my conversation with Dr Tamara Walker, head of surgery at ACCES and board certified surgeon.  Today we focused mostly on orthopedics, which is anything related to the structure of the body: bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, etc…  So much more to talk about – I look forward to having her back!

ACCES is offering a couple of workshops that are free to the public!  Here’s what you need to know:
