Gain knowledge of some startling statistics on cardiovascular disease and stroke, and become educated on the warning signs of stroke and how to achieve the ideal cardiovascular health.

Through your reading, you’ll gain insight into the anatomy of the lower back, current research on the causes of kids’ and teenagers’ back pain, and how to market and apply your knowledge to clients. So much life-enriching information, all in one course.
