Meet Dr. Jordan Metzl for a health care policy discussion and Ironstrength workout!

Tonight's (5/19) event w Dr. Jordan Metzl:

Due to some last minute schedule changes, we are postponing today's health care policy discussion with Dr. Metzl.

We will issue refunds to those who have already paid for their tickets, but for those that are still interested in attending one of Dr. Metzl's highly regarded Ironstrength workouts, there is one coming up this Wednesday, May 21st at 6:15AM in Central Park. You can register for the workout HERE.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Stay tuned for a newly rescheduled event date later this summer!

Renowned sports medicine physician and preventative health advocate - and DL21C'er!  -  Dr. Jordan Metzl, will join DL21C for a truly unique event in just two short weeks!

Part policy discussion, part Ironstrength workout, we invite you to join us on Monday, May 19th.

Dr. Metzl will offer his views on Obamacare and how policy affects personal health - and will discuss his advocacy of "The Exercise Cure" - after which you can join us for one of his hugely popular Ironstrength workouts.

Many DL21C'ers have been hard at work on campaigns over the past year - this is a great opportunity to get outdoors and get active!
