What does your club do?
We hold workshops where we bring experts in a variety of health topics such as nutritionists, doctors, and instructors to educate students on things such as diet, nutrition, the progress of eastern-western medicine integration, and a plethora of other therapeutic techniques such as massage, tai-chi, acupuncture. We carry interesting discussions on topics in the health field and pursue an increased understanding of that material. We also hold social events, field trips, and raffles.
