Dr. Cynthia Rudert to speak at the next AMC meeting

If you have never heard Dr. Rudert speak, you are definitely missing out! Not only does she connect with her audience in ways you can't imagine until you experience it, you'll quickly find out that Dr. Rudert could have a career in stand-up comedy if she wanted to. Yes, Dr. Cynthia Rudert is one of the most entertaining doctors you'll ever encounter.

Not to make light of the current situation the world finds itself in, but I'm so thankful that I learned to self isolate when I was diag...
