Southeast Georgia Health System and the Golden Isles YMCA are teaming up
to offer the community a convenient, easily accessible Health Information
Center and a new "Sports Smart" series.
Located in the YMCA, at 144 Scranton Connector in Brunswick, the Southeast
Georgia Health System Health Information Center offers a wide range of
medical and health education materials, such as diabetes, heart health,
asthma, and more, as well as computers with online access to the Health
System website and other health related sites.
The Health Information Center will also host a free monthly "Sports
Smart" series, a drop-in question and answer session that allows
attendees an opportunity to discuss sports health and injury prevention
topics with a Health System certified athletic trainer. Sports Smart sessions
are offered on the first Tuesday of each month, 4:30-7:30 p.m., with topics
and presenters varying each month.
The first Sports Smart session, scheduled on Tuesday, April 1, and hosted
by Becky Knor, M.S., ATC, PES, athletic trainer with the Health System
Sports Medicine department, will feature the topic "Pre-Participation
Evaluations (PPEs): A Parent’s Role."
The Health Information Center will be open to the public during all YMCA
operating hours, which are Monday – Friday, 5:30 a.m.-9 p.m., Saturday,
8 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, 1-5 p.m. The Golden Isles YMCA is located at
