Dr. Courter is the founder of the Boomer Health Institute and the author of “The Boomer Survivor Kit: An Indispensable Guide For Yourself, Your Relationships, and Your Life.” This book was just published in July 2013. Dr. Courter has also been the Associate Medical Director of a large health care agency and he has been a national consultant on challenging cases, discussing these cases with doctors from New York’s Presbyterian Hospital to California’s Standford Medical Center. He is a board certified psychiatrist, but he has worked extensive in public health administration, obtaining an overview of medical cases, psychiatric cases, and substance abuse cases.
