Throughout the year, Oswego Health host Ask The Doctor forums which are designed to create an open dialogue between healthcare providers/professionals and community members. Reservations are encouraged.
Join us for another night of Ask The Doctor. Come and meet our general surgeons who will
discuss general and laparoscopic procedures and the specifics of breast surgeries, colorectal surgeries and advanced hernia repairs. There will be plenty of time for audience questions and a short video will provide the opportunity to see inside one of Oswego Hospital’s state-of-the-art operating rooms.
We started the year off learning how you can be more heart healthy. Cardiologist Thomas Grady, Jr., MD discussed how nutrition, exercise and other healthy habits lead to good heart health.
Oswego Health invites members of the community to a panel Ask The Doctor program on Diabetes Prevention, which will discuss the risk factors, the impact of diabetes and prediabetes on overall health, measures available to prevent progression to diabetes and programs offered in the community to improve health.
Leading the panel discussion will be Francis Clifford Arce, MD, along with Family Nurse Practitioner Dominque Guadalupe and Oswego Health’s Certified Diabetes Educator Susan Callaway.
