Tummy Troubles?

Do you struggle with heartburn, acid reflux, or other stomach problems? Learn to recognize the symptoms of common stomach ailments by attending Coffey Health System's Lunch & Learn event at noon on Thursday, August 4.

Many adults suffer daily with undiagnosed digestive problems. When these problems are understood and addressed, there can be treatment options available. Shekhar Challa, M.D. will help participants understand their stomach problems and know when it is necessary to get them checked out.

"Dr. Challa's expert digestive care has been a mainstay at Coffey County Hospital for 25 years.  He is now devoting an additional day each month to our patients, so we look forward to seeing even more of him," said Director of Marketing Tracy Campbell. "This Lunch & Learn event is a great opportunity for the community to get to know him better and learn from one of the area's top gastroenterologists."

The presentation is from noon to 1 p.m. in Coffey County Hospital's Allen Woods 2 Conference Room. Attendance and lunch are free; however, seating is limited.
