SLHS to Launch New Lecture Series

Potsdam, NY – St. Lawrence Health System's Board Certified Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist James Vecchio, MD, will lead a new series of lectures as part of Colon Cancer Awareness Month. "Gastrointestinal Health – What You Must Know," will be held on March 14, 21, and 28, from 12:00-1:00 pm, in the 2nd Floor Conference Rooms of 50 Leroy Street.

On March 14, Dr. Vecchio will highlight the most prevalent gastrointestinal conditions; on March 21, the discussion will focus on the role and function of EGDs (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) and colonoscopies; and on March 28, Dr. Vecchio will present tips on how to maintain gastrointestinal health.

The St. Lawrence Health System Lecture Series presents relevant topics to provide health education and information to our community within a time frame that encourages a deeper delve into subject matter. Participants are welcome to sign up for individual or multiple sessions.
