BRUNSWICK, Georgia: Jan. 15, 2008 – According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in every five Americans will be age 65 or older by the year 2030. To discuss health concerns of our aging population Southeast Georgia Health System will present “Healthy Aging” as part of the Health System’s ongoing series of free community lectures. This presentation is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 22, at 7 p.m., in the Linda S. Pinson Conference Center on the Health System’s Brunswick Campus, 2415 Parkwood Drive, Brunswick.

After completing his residency in Charleston, SC, at Trident Family Medicine, Blumer returned to his hometown to practice at Jefferson Hospital before accepting the offer to join Glynn Family Medicine Center in July 2008.
