    Can you email me a schedule of events. Are there breaks? What do we do about lunch? Do we choose classes or are able to hear all discussions. Thanks you very much. bonnievlloyd @yahoo.com. I live in Salt Lake City and am a patient of Dr. Atanackovic. I will also have a care-giver there and possibly a retired doctor. Thanks for getting back to me.
