Did you know there is a secret treasure hidden in every Heinen’s store? Trained by our Chief Medical Officer Dr. Todd Pesek, MD, these gems are your Heinen’s Wellness Consultants.
I continue to be amazed by their genuine passion and individual areas of expertise, like Carol Siska’s deep knowledge of celiac disease at Heinen’s Bainbridge, to Shilah Cipriano’s experience with fermenting her own foods at Heinen’s Chardon. I learn something new every time I visit a Heinen’s Wellness Department.
