We’ve been looking for a Functional Medicine Practitioner for more than a year and we think we finally found the perfect fit. It was difficult to find someone that (1) knew how to use the best science-based testing and had a background in Functional Medicine, (2) had a Masters in Nutrition from a great program, and (3) was an athlete themselves and understood the specific issues that athletes face. We are very excited to announce that Dr. Karen Hufnagl, DC, MS is joining the Sanitas team.
