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. The speaker
for the event is board certified family medicine physician John Blumer, MD.
Blumer, a native of Louisville, Georgia, completed his Bachelor’s
and Master’s degrees from the University of Georgia, before going
on to receive his medical degree from the Mercer University School of
Medicine in Macon. 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.

a healthy lifestyle in order to stay well as you age and what regular
screenings are necessary for achieving optimal health. Following his lecture,
