Recently, U.S. Representative Joe Courtney, North Stonington First Selectman Mike Urgo, The Day Editor Lee Howard, and friends joined Dr. Stefana Pecher on a tour of The Country Doc Wellness Center and “The Farm” where Better Together CT will grow.
Dr. Pecher envisioned the two projects to facilitate healing in N. Stonington area communities, with a focus on the challenges that veterans face upon their return home. Country Wellness is the New England Center of Excellence for
Holistic Medicine, its new expansion will offer a number of services that can be difficult to access in the area. A new float pod just arrived that evening, and a hyperbaric oxygen chamber (among others) are on the way.
Better Together CT is a new 501(c)(3) nonprofit devoted to welcoming our veterans back to life at home through job training and exposure to the arts. Even more is on the way!
Here is a video of the day, with a focus on the non-profit aspects. Thank you Frank Fulchiero (SEC-TV) for putting this together for us!
Better Together CT is a community based program promoting healing through community, agriculture, and the arts.
