SEARHC is hosting a new series of free “Doc Talks” presentations from March 8, through April 5, 2017.

The variety of topics presented by Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital’s medical providers is an excellent way for Sitkans to learn about health-related issues that interest them.

Topics presented may affect an individual personally, or someone close to them. Beyond listening to the presentations, attendees will have an opportunity to ask the presenters questions.

This event is hosted by SEARHC Health Promotion and offered at no cost. There is no need to register or sign up in advance. Attendees can also look forward to healthy snacks and refreshments before presentations.
