Special Event to be held on South Padre Island April 28-29

Weslaco / South Padre Island – He’s a doctor, a motivational speaker, a singer / rapper, and he’s funny. He’s “Z-Dogg, MD”, also known as Dr. Zubin Damania — and he is coming to the Valley all the way from Las Vegas — to headline a 25th anniversary conference for Valley physicians, pharmacists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, medical students and other health professionals on Friday, April 28 and Saturday, April 29 at the Isla Grande Resort on South Padre Island.

On his website, www.ZDoggMD.com, Dr. Damania is described as “an international icon and man of mild-to-moderate mystery … apart from writing and producing award-winning medical parody videos that educate and entertain, he’s a highly sought-after healthcare speaker and thought leader.”
