A passion for healing, a knack for speaking.
Renowned pediatrician, speaker and television health correspondent, Dr. Corey Hebert will speak at CWU on March 9 at 7 p.m. in a free, open to the public event in the SURC Ballroom after a similar talk on March 8 at Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences in Yakima.
