“Boomeritis” Topic of Upcoming Free Lecture

BRUNSWICK, Georgia: April 2, 2008 – How do you know if the aches and pains you are feeling are just normal aging or if you have a real health problem? That is the topic that will be addressed at the Southeast Georgia Health System free lecture, “Boomeritis: The Difference Between Middle Age Aches and Pains and When You Should Really Go See a Doctor.” This presentation, part of the Health System’s ongoing series of free community lectures, is scheduled for Thursday, April 9, at 7 p.m. in the Linda S. Pinson Conference Center on the Brunswick Campus, 2415 Parkwood Drive.
