Miss the last Lunch Bunch?...

We hope you were able to join us at our last Lunch Bunch presentation, but if you were not able to, watch the video of the presentation.

The Pain of Physical Intimacy: An open dialogue

If you were not able to join other, past sessions, watch the videos of the presentations here. 

Our audience spoke, we listened.

In May 2012, we began hosting The Breakfast Club, an early morning session to share interesting and relevant health information and tips. You told us lunchtime would be more convenient and easier to squeeze in your busy day, so we've adjusted accordingly. The Breakfast Club became the Lunch Bunch, meeting every other month. Now, we bring you the Lunch Bunch monthly! Join us the second Tuesday of the month on your lunch break, from noon to 1 p.m., for a free light lunch. All sessions are free and hosted at the Specialty Care Center at Victory Lakes. A door prize will be given at every event.
