    America in the 1930s and 40s was a nation ripe with segregation and discrimination.

Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in Hyde Park, New York where he is responsible for developing all of the Library's education offerings ranging from second grade to college and adult learning programs.

    At this supportive Q & A panel discussion, our guest hosts will be offering their professional advice to aid those who are looking for answers to assist them in improving their physical and emotional well-being. 

     

    Guest panelists:

     

    Dr. Nancy Iankowitz, DNP, RN, APRN, FNP-BC, Director of Holistic and Integrative Healing LLC, is a certified family nurse practitioner by trade, mother by choice, and writer by nature. Her books facilitate healing through storytelling, so adults and children of all ages may learn how to cope with anxiety and improve communication in their relationships. Her articles separate fact from fiction to allay fears and educate the public about wellness practices to protect themselves and loved ones from the flu, sinusitis, back pain, COVID-19, and more. As a Reiki practitioner she teaches self-healing, as we all have that power. As a functional medicine provider (over 30 years), she embraces a SYSTEMS – based rather than ‘symptoms – based’ approach to wellness. Eastern and western wisdom are blended to individualize treatments & recommendations for each patient.
