Virtual Food for Thought

Most of us take our lungs for granted.  We don’t think about how hard they work to keep us breathing all day, every day. November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, providing us with opportunities to learn more about one of our body’s most vital organs.  Every breath we take is a reminder of how important our lungs are to our overall well-being.

Join us for a Virtual Food for Thought presentation on “Every Breath You Take” as Renato Galindo, MCH Director of Cardiopulmonary services discusses your lung health and the diseases that impact it.

Food for Thought is going virtual!  Until our in-person luncheons resume, we will be providing Food for Thought online.  On the second Thursday of every month you will find a new topic and presentation providing insightful news on the latest medical topics.  Our goal continues to be to provide information that will keep you informed, healthy and active.

Take someone you love by the hand and join us for lectures, luncheons and other fun activities at Hand In Hand, the new program from Medical Center Health System that provides important updates on current medical topics and events going on around our community.
