Prior class registration is not mandatory but is encouraged. To reserve your place in a class, please RSVP to Rene at Rene@Primeatc.com
We’d like to hear from you! Support Group Suggestions Requested 

Prime ATC is planning on holding targeted support groups in the future as a way for patients with similar conditions to get together and talk about what works, what doesn’t, and to get support from others who may be on a same health journey.

We’d like to know what times you’d want to see support groups held and if you’d like to see a specific condition (MS, PTSD, Chronic Pain, Lyme disease, etc.) represented in a future support group meeting.

Please let Rene know what you think about Prime ATC’s support groups at Rene@Primeatc.com.
