EDUCATIONAL LECTURE SERIES

We are planning to start an educational lecture series to cover various health related topics each month. We plan to continue this series as long as there is enough interest in the community. We are considering some topics initially, but welcome other topics which you may be interested in. Please call Brij Bhargava (269-271-2735) or any other board member to suggest other topics. Arun Tandon is scheduled for two presentations in September. Our goal is to cover a new topic each month. Several physicians from the community, who are leaders in their medical specialty, have agreed to participate in this educational lecture series for everyone’s benefit. Here are some suggested topics under consideration: 1. Just headache or a tumor?,
2. Blood pressure - a silent killer,
3. Depression - you don't have to suffer alone,
4. Gas or is it a heart attack?,
5. Diabetes - why should I worry about it?

Arun Tandon will be presenting two talks on September 14 and 21 with questions and answers, at IACCT, lower level, as follows:
“Solving the puzzle of weight loss – once for all!! Simple solutions – fast results by Arun Tandon
Thursday, September 14, 2017 7:30 PM

Thursday, September 21, 2017 7:30 PM
