As an added component to their Health Education Lecture Series, Southeast
Georgia Health System has launched virtual Health Chat Webinars. An easy,
convenient alternative to attending in-person lectures, Health Chat Webinars
allow anyone interested in improving their health or expanding their knowledge
of health care to participate from a personal computer, smart phone or
mobile device at a time of their choice.
The first webinar,“Lung Cancer Screening… is it right for you?”
, will be presented by Kenyon M. Meadows, M.D., vice chief, Department
of Radiology. A board-certified radiation oncologist, Dr. Meadows is an
active proponent of educating the community about risk factors that contribute
to cancer, the screenings that can help diagnose cancer in its earliest
stages and the advanced technology available to treat various cancers.
During Dr. Meadows’ presentation, webinar followers will learn about
lung cancer prevention and early detection, as well as minimally invasive
cancer treatment options available at the Health System.
“Informing the community about ways to prevent cancer and the options
available to them to catch cancer early is key,” says Dr. Meadows.
“With advanced, low dose CT scan technology, cancer is being caught
earlier than ever before, increasing the chances of a favorable outcome.
People need to know that this technology is available and how to take
advantage of this life-saving screening.”
Dr. Meadows completed his medical degree at Case Western Reserve University’s
School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio, and an internship in internal medicine
at Metrohealth Medical Center, also in Cleveland. He has contributed to
several prestigious medical journals, including the American Journal of
Otolaryngology and the American Journal of Oncology, and he is experienced
