So far, the series has covered heart health, organ donation awareness, dementia for caregivers, neurological disorders of advancing age, breast cancer surgeries, head injuries and concussions, chronic back pain, and vascular surgery.

CMH CEO, Greg Nielsen, spoke of the success of the events so far.

“We’re excited to see that the community has taken an interest in these events, and we look forward to our final discussion led by Dr. Agabegi,” Nielsen said. “Our medical staff members made this series possible, and bring so much expertise to this community — we love showcasing their unique specialties, and hope that this has given community members an opportunity to learn more about their own health in a very personal and accessible way.”

Thursday’s event will take place at 5 p.m. in the CMH Café Conference Rooms and will be focused on surgical and nonsurgical treatments for low-back and neck issues, as well as a discussion of spine surgery at CMH.
