HOLYOKE — Holyoke Medical Center will host a free discussion, “Colon Health: Problems & Prevention,” on Wednesday, March 14 at 5:30 p.m. in the HMC Auxiliary Conference Center.
As people age, the risk of developing health problems with the colon increases overall. Colon cancer and common colon disorders such as celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome can have an impact in one’s everyday life. Join Dr. Francis Martinez, HMC specialty surgeon, as he explores common colon health problems, symptoms, and key approaches to prevention.
This program is free and open to the public, and is part of Holyoke Medical Center’s community-education programming. This is one in a series of workshops held throughout the year to help people learn about specific health issues, wellness, prevention, and treatment.
