Kids who have mentors experience many benefits both while in the mentoring relationship and after it ends. Here are some of the most important ways that kids benefit from mentoring.
Dr. Wigley is passionate about children, and he has created fun mentoring events to inspire all children in our community and show them they can become doctors too!
I believe one of our most important contributions is educating our community about wellness and nutrition. That will put every individual in charge of their own health.
Dr. Wigley offers classes and resources to learn about nutrition and wellness to promote lifestyle changes leading to optimal health.
We have gone beyond the medical realm to offer our community a place to gather, learn and heal.
We have created specialized centers and developed specialized therapies and treatments.
