A group of Naples physicians, led by Dr. Brian Smith and Dr. Joaquin Hernandez, has partnered to open Sagewood Institute.

Sagewood Institute will bring together expert health professionals from a variety of disciplines to help people look and feel healthy as they age by using cutting-edge research and techniques, a press release states.

The institute will strive to educate professionals and the public on effective and proven peer-reviewed research on healthy aging. Ongoing lectures and seminars will occur throughout the year.

The grand opening for Sagewood Institute will be held from 4-7 p.m. on Feb. 21 at 801 Anchor Rode Drive, Suite 304, in Naples. Tours of the facility and procedure demonstrations will be available during the opening reception and afterward by appointment. There will also be free gifts, free product samples, and drawings to win up to $500 in services.

To celebrate the grand opening, Sagewood is offering the first 100 members of the institute’s Founder’s Club a discounted annual fee of $1,200 (a $2,600 value).
