The award-winning, clinically proven immune health ingredient EpiCor, manufactured by Embria Health Sciences, is sponsoring a health care practitioner event at this year's SupplySide East. The workshop, Health Practitioners and Supplements: Channel Data, Strategies and Opportunities for Growth, will run from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 3 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center. Attendees will hear about nutrition and supplement trends in the rapidly growing professional market from Holistic Primary Care editor Erik Goldman and the prominent integrative physician Derrick DeSilva, M.D.
"Given the current state of health care in the U.S., the growing acceptance of using preventative medicine such as dietary supplements in both integrative and traditional medical practices makes good fiscal sense," says Embria Health Sciences president Paul Faganel. "Embria is proud to have our flagship immune health ingredient, EpiCor, sponsor such an informative event that breaks down both the rewards and challenges supplement manufacturers face as they enter into the practitioner realm."
