Health Talks

New! Roundtable Health Talk Series

Beginning in March 2016, the SJMC Community Outreach Department will provide a new type of health talk, our Roundtable Health Talk Series. Each month throughout the year, we are scheduling interactive panel discussions, consisting primarily of UH St. John Medical Center healthcare professionals, presenting many different aspects of a specific health topic and current health concerns. Information on medication, nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices will be common themes of these talks. Each roundtable will be held at UH St. John Medical Center on the 4th Thursday of the month in Building 2, Auditorium B at 6:00 p.m. Information tables on related topics will also be a part of the presentation.

Each roundtable will be sponsored by a community extended care facility. Join us for health and wellness information and discussion, while you enjoy a light dinner provided by our local healthcare facilities.
RSVP: Monday – Friday 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. - Call 1-877-597-6348
