Your well-being is our top priority, and we remain committed to delivering quality healthcare and supporting your wellness in this unprecedented time.

Do you have unexplained symptoms such as hives, dizziness, wheezing, or generalized inflammation? Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS) could be the reason. In this Lunch and Learn, Dr. Scott Jamison will introduce the emerging topic of MCAS and the role that abnormal mast cell function can play in producing complicated chronic disease states. MCAS may be an explanation for patients with chronic, previously undiagnosed medical symptoms. Dr. Jamison will discuss treatment standards as well as the importance of taking an individualized care approach, as each person’s symptoms manifest uniquely.
Learn life-saving skills in this friends and family CPR course. Participants will learn what to do when an adult, child, or infant is choking, as well as how to use CPR to help an adult, child, or infant in sudden cardiac arrest. This is a great workshop for parents and grandparents to learn the basics of CPR and other emergency lifesaving techniques. This program does not include AED training and will not provide a CPR course completion card; however, participants may download a certificate of participation.
What is functional medicine, and why do the physicians at PALM Health use this approach? In this seminar, Dr. Scott Jamison, an Institute of Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner, will explain how functional medicine gets to the root cause of illness. Dr. Jamison will address how this diagnostic approach helps resolve underlying medical conditions instead of treating individual symptoms.
