Prescriptions for Health
October 8, 2008Franklin Community Health Network is bringing back its popular community education series titled “Prescriptions for Health.” The series features local physicians who present on a variety of health and wellness topics. The series is open to the public and free of charge.
Registrations are now being taken for a presentation featuring Dr. Jay Naliboff, which will take place on Wednesday, October 29, from 7:30-9 a.m., in the Ben Franklin Center at Franklin Memorial Hospital. Dr. Naliboff, who is affiliated with Franklin Health Women’s Care, will discuss causes and treatments of female urinary incontinence.
“Urinary incontinence is a common and distressing problem for women of all ages. Most causes of incontinence are treatable with lifestyle changes, exercise, medication, or surgery. The key to proper treatment is proper diagnosis of the type of incontinence,” said Dr. Naliboff. “My talk will cover the common forms of female urinary incontinence, assessments for this condition, and the various treatment options available.”
Registration is required, as space is limited. For more information or to register call Jodi Cordes at 779-2592 or 1-800-398-6031, ext. 2592 or register online. Light refreshments will be available, as well as child care to those who request it in advance.
A sampling of upcoming topics for the “Prescriptions for Health” series includes: emergency preparedness; cardiovascular health; autism, ADD, and other developmental disorders; and diabetes management.
If you have suggestions for future topics and/or speakers please contact Cordes with your ideas.
