Local Medical Experts Tackle Five Health Topics

Being healthy is a 21st century obsession. Books, magazines, TV shows and social media are filled with ideas for maintaining our health.

And so, we thought we’d add some targeted material to the discussion. We asked local experts to share the latest thinking on five topics that span the ages. Starting with having a healthy pregnancy, we move to protecting our teens against HPV, then helping women decipher the latest mammogram guidelines and helping everyone understand the shifting science on blood pressure guidelines. And, finally, we go beyond the wisdom of TV commercials on shingles.

Just doing our part to contribute to the conversation. Here’s to your health!
