Big House On Ponce says
A little history:

The Big House has been an Herb Bus Station for the past 2 years. On the last Wednesday of every month, we would stop there and service a list of patients, both new patients, follow-up appointment, and refills. All the appointments were scheduled by an in-house coordinator (aka the Station Host). While the system worked pretty well, and served us for the past two years, at the January clinic we decided the time had come to expand our offerings… and just like that the Herbalista Community Health Fair was born.

This Health Fair offers not only integrative services, but also free education and network opportunities.

Our first fair took place on February 25th, 2015. Click here for photos:
