|Dr. Carolyn Chambers Clark, ARNP
WELCOME TO WELLNESS, SELF-CARE and POSITIVE RELATIONSHIP
I'm Carolyn Chambers Clark, a nurse practitioner
with a doctorate in using education principles and research to help people become more well and feel better no matter what
their age or their physical condition.
Because your health care practitioner may not have the time to read all
the latest research or talk to you about all your concerns, it's important to be an informed consumer. Just as you wouldn't
buy a car or house without finding out all the details first, make sure you know about the side effects of any medications,
treatments, or surgeries, and what the alternatives are. No one is more concerned about you than you.
If you have
a question or comments about my web site, writing or editing, please fill in the box below.
Thanks, and stay well!
