Featured Speaker: Dr. Heather Clark, PharmD, is an intuitive coach, healer, speaker and author. She focuses on guiding individuals to understand and heal their connection with their internal selves to create support, freedom, and feel fully alive. Dr. Clark was a National Merit Scholar, earned her doctorate in pharmacy in 1997, completed her post-doctoral residency at the Kansas City Veterans Administration Medical Center in 1998, and has practiced in a variety of settings including community, long-term care, consulting, and hospital clinical pharmacy. After her own recovery from severe burnout, she has helped many others recover quickly, safely, and permanently using her Burnout Cure program.
