Bluewater Health Introduces Mini Medical School

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 - 1:07pm

SARNIA & PETROLIA – October 9, 2019 – Many medical schools offer a ‘mini medical school’ to provide the latest medical information to the public on various diseases/conditions. Dr. Haddad, Chief of Staff, is pleased to announce Bluewater Health is starting a mini medical school locally to offer a series of lectures to the public on health topics of interest. 

The first two talks are:

  • Dr. Youssef Almalki, Radiologist, will talk about Cancer Screening – Breast, Lung, and Colon, on Thursday October 24 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm.
  • Dr. Paul Martin, Urologist, will talk about Prostate Health on Monday November 18 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm.

Both sessions will be held in the Auditorium on Level 2, London Building at Bluewater Health.

“This is an opportunity for our physicians to provide valuable information on the latest research related to prevention, diagnosis, and treatment to our residents,” said Dr. Haddad. “People are always searching for reliable information on health topics so they can make informed decisions about their own health.”

Future topics include Diabetes and Advanced Care Planning.  Participants at the sessions can also assist in shaping future topics.
