imparted health hip dysplasia

It all started with a little boy...

Everyone has a story - something that spurs them into action and changes the course of their life. In my case, it was one of the most difficult times of my life: when my first child was born and diagnosed with hip dysplasia six months later. As a new parent, I was sleep deprived, overwhelmed and trying to adjust to my new "normal". I thought I was doing everything "right" - okay I was just trying to get through the day! Even with a medical background, I didn't know that our son’s hip was in full dislocation and had been that way for the first six months of his life.

Know better. Do better.

Imparted Health was born out of the desire to help people just like you navigate their health and wellness journey, but the truth is that we can only do better if we know better. I've spent fifteen years seeing patients who are shocked when their bodies stop working properly! As I've talked with patients, I found myself thinking: "I wish I could have explained this to you ten years ago!" I decided to start being proactive and help people learn about how their bodies work so they can actually understand how to be healthy! Sounds super easy right? As it turns out, it isn't. Until now. Wellness and lifestyle goals are constantly evolving and dynamic, let us help you navigate the details, learn more about your health and find the resources you need so you don't have to do it alone.
