While his primary focus is on health and disease prevention, Dr. Wentz is also passionate about music, and he strongly supports music education. This passion led him to help fund the Wentz Concert Hall and Fine Arts Center at his undergraduate alma mater, North Central College in Naperville, Illinois. The concert hall was completed in 2008.Learn more about the Wentz Concert Hall and view upcoming events
