Speaker:  Emma Tillman, Pharm.D., Ph.D.,Indiana University School of Medicine 

Description: Chasing your dreams when you have to resort to Plan B

"Plan A is always my first choice… the one where everything works out, but more often than not, I find myself dealing with the upside-down, inside-out version where nothing goes as it should. 

This is where the real test of character comes in. Do I sink or do I swim? Do I wallow in self-pity or simply shift gears and make the best of the situation? The choice is mine. 

After all… life is all about how you handle Plan B."

- Suzy Toronto


Following Dr. Tillman's presentation, meeting attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and invited to join an open forum to discuss their own experiences with exercise and living on HPN.
