BRUNSWICK, Georgia: April 21, 2008 – Once children enter school,
parents can’t always be there to make sure they are eating right,
playing safe, and practicing good health hygiene. That is why Southeast
Georgia Health System is offering the lecture “Keeping Your Child
Healthy at School.” This presentation, part of the Health System’s
ongoing series of free community lectures, is scheduled for Thursday,
April 23, at 7 p.m. in the Linda S. Pinson Conference Center on the Brunswick
Campus, 2415 Parkwood Drive, Brunswick.

P. Bristol, MD, of the Community Care Center, a strategic affiliate of
the Health System

in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Bristol is a former dean of the Mercer University
School of Medicine in Macon, Georgia, and has been practicing in Glynn
