What’s New at Pritikin in 2018
PRITIKIN STAFF SHOWCASES COLLABORATIVE EVENTS
At Pritikin Longevity Center, it's the physicians, nutritionists, personal trainers, chefs and dedicated staff members who know our guests best. These experts are the ones who advise and counsel and the ones who talk with, eat with, laugh with and support our guests throughout their Pritikin journey. This year, members of our staff have taken their insider knowledge and joined forces to develop new initiatives that will help further your journey at Pritikin and make your stay more entertaining, informative, and enjoyable.
See what our staff members have been collaborating on bringing to you this year!
