It’s #ProstateCancer Awareness Month! If you’re a man ages 55 to 69, talk with your health care provider about prostate cancer screening. ⠀ ⠀ Adeep B. Thumar, MD, Medical Director of Urology at Summit Medical Group, says, “As men age, the prostate may start causing symptoms, such as weak stream, incomplete emptying, urinary frequency, or night-time urination. Discuss possible symptoms of prostate cancer with your primary care physician or a urologist.” #ProstateCancerAwarenessMonth
Summit Medical Group’s Olabisi Asimolowo, MD, Interventional Pain Management specialist, presented a community lecture on Chronic Pain Relief at our Berkeley Heights facility. Millions of Americans suffer from daily pain, which can be debilitating and diminish overall quality of life. Dr. Asimolowo discussed the many treatment options available that offer much-needed relief.
Thank you to @DrewUniversity's Health Services Department for hosting Summit Medical Group Sleep experts, Vicky Seelall, MD, FCCP, and Kerry Kelley, RN, RRT, RPSGT, for a lecture on How to Sleep Better 101. Studies have shown that seven hours of sleep is crucial for better academic performance and maintaining a higher GPA. A better night sleep in also key for improving memory retention. One way to ensure you get that beneficial shut eye, is to reduce screen time at least two hours before bed.
