ACH Offers Health and Medical Education
Ever wonder if your blood pressure medication is impacted by your daily multi-vitamin? Confused about which symptoms indicate a flu virus, as opposed to those associated with the common cold? Worried you may have some of the risk factors for heart disease?
Alliance Community Hospital is encouraging local civic, church, school, and other organizations to contact the facility to request subject matter experts to speak to them on health and/or wellness topics.
“We just want to take an opportunity to remind the community that we have a fully operational and very active Speaker’s Bureau,” said Patty Kimerer, PR/Foundation Director at ACH.
Kimerer said that a host of ACH physicians, nurses, pharmacists, medical assistants, technicians and other clinicians and health care professionals are available upon request to address meetings, assemblies or gatherings on a wide range of health education subjects.
“Our professionals are happy to address everything from acid reflux to rehabilitation therapy and everything in between,” she said, explaining that the hospital’s patient-centered philosophy, called Planetree, emphasizes empowering patients through education and open communication.
“The more knowledgeable folks are about health risk factors and warnings, the more invested they will be in their own health and wellness. We want to arm them with information that will ultimately help them make healthier, more informed decisions,” said Kimerer.
For more information or to request a speaker, contact the Public Relations office at 330-596-7575 or visit the Alliance Community Hospital website at www.achosp.org, the hospital Facebook page or the hospital You Tube channel to learn more about ACH programs and services.
