November Medical Monday features two presentations
Erica Kretchman, D.O.
The November Medical Monday celebrates eight years with two presentations -- one about diabetes and another about insurance.
Erica Kretchman, D.O.,
Reid Endocrinology, will speak about "Taking Diabetes to Heart" to address how
diabetes increases risk of heart attacks and strokes - and how to take steps to
prevent them. Terri Hamm will also share about the State Health Insurance
Assistance Program (SHIP). SHIP is a free health benefits counseling service for
Medicare beneficiaries and their families or caregivers. The program is not
affiliated with any insurance company or agency and does not sell insurance.
Medical Monday will
begin at 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 11, at Central United Methodist Church, 1425 E.
Main St. in Richmond. To attend, please RSVP Sharrie
Harlin-Davis at (765) 983-3000, ext. 4676.
Medical Monday is
supported by Reid Health Community Benefit. Harlin-Davis started the event when
she was working for the Minority Health Coalition and maintained it after
joining Reid Health. The event has built a loyal following, averaging 40 to 50
guests each month to learn about various health issues and community programs.
