The 2nd annual Mountain Medicine Festival celebrates health and fun — while supporting and raising awareness about the importance of nature in our lives!
Enjoy music by Queen Bee and the Honeylovers, learn about the connections between personal, environmental, and community health, and support local nonprofits.
Integrative Family Medicine of Asheville and Wedge at Foundation are hosting the second annual Mountain Medicine Festival, a community celebration and concert highlighting the health benefits of nature and benefiting local environmental nonprofits. The all ages event will take place on Sunday, September 15, from 4:30 pm–6:30 pm at the Wedge at Foundation on Foundry Street.
“New research confirms the timeless wisdom that our health is inextricably linked with both our natural and social environment. We want to highlight and nurture these relationships to support our community,” said Dr. Brian Lewis, MD, MPH. Dr. Lewis and Dr. Chad Krisel are founders, owners, and medical providers at Integrative Family Medicine of Asheville.
Queen Bee and the Honeylovers (swing jazz) will perform, and several local environmental nonprofits will staff booths to highlight their advocacy work and volunteer opportunities.
The festival is free to attend, but donations are encouraged. All donations received will be split equally between the featured environmental nonprofits: Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy, MountainTrue, Dogwood Alliance, Conserving Carolina, and Asheville GreenWorks.
