Do you want to learn how eat better to help manage your diabetes? Looking for medical or surgical help to lose weight? Have concerns about vascular disease? Expecting a baby? Need a refresher in mindfulness-based stress reduction?
You’ll find answers at upcoming Jefferson events.
Also on Monday at noon, at Jefferson’s Center City campus, there’s an information session on OPTIFAST – a clinically proven, nutritionally balanced, calorie-controlled liquid diet – by Jefferson’s Comprehensive Weight Management Program.
On Tuesday evening, people who are considering weight-loss surgery can attend a seminar on bariatric surgery with Jefferson surgeon David Tichansky, MD, FACS. The free seminar is an opportunity to meet our bariatric surgery team and learn if this option is right for you.
Jefferson has partnered with Dare to C.A.R.E. a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives through vascular disease prevention and education. On Tuesday evening you can learn more about vascular health by attending a Dare to C.A.R.E. educational seminar at Methodist. Those who attend the seminar are eligible for a free vascular screening the following evening.
Expecting a new baby is an exciting time. It can also be stressful.
Jefferson regularly holds classes and other events for expectant parents that can help you through the process. For example, learn how to correctly install a car seat and get safety tips to keep your children and grandchildren safe. If you are planning on delivering at Jefferson, take a tour of Maternity.
The teaching staff at the Mindfulness Institute of the Jefferson-Myrna Brind Center of Integrative Medicine will be holding refresher classes for graduates of the eight-week mindfulness-based stress reduction program.
These “post-graduate” sessions are opportunities for past participants to get together for a discussion of issues of mindfulness in daily living and meditate together. And for those interested in taking the mindfulness-based stress reduction (MSBR) course, summer sessions are staring in June at both Center City and the campus of Bryn Mawr Hospital.
