UCF Pegasus Health Seminar Series Addresses Popular Health Concerns

When it comes to your health, knowledge is power. Unfortunately, so many people feel overwhelmed with the plethora of information, misinformation and conflicting reports that they simply don’t know where to turn.

The UCF Pegasus Health Seminar Series was developed to help bridge the gap between medical science and useful information consumers can consider when making informed decisions.

The series is free to the public and begins in October. All sessions will be held at UCF Pegasus Health, 3400 Quadrangle Blvd., Orlando, FL 32817-on the corner of University Boulevard, just blocks from the main UCF campus (and on the shuttle route).
