From ETMC Tyler
TYLER - ETMC will offer a free KnowledgeFirst Forum on obesity and weight loss surgery with Freda Harris, RN, bariatric coordinator for ETMC Tyler on Tuesday, Oct. 7, at 10 a.m. in the ETMC Pavilion in Tyler.
“Obesity is a growing concern across East Texas,” commented Harris. “Obese patients face serious health complications such as high blood pressure, sleep apnea, joint problems and diabetes. Surgical treatment may provide a solution for some patients. Surgical treatment options will be discussed, including gastric bypass surgery, Lap-Band and sleeve gastrectomy.”
Light refreshments will be served. Free parking is available next to the ETMC Pavilion, located at 801 Clinic Drive in Tyler. The gate and building will open at 9:30 a.m. and the presentation will begin at 10 a.m. Please pre-register by calling 866-333-ETMC and press 6.
