Subject: NARH Sponsors Local Lectures

North Adams Regional Hospital will sponsor two
lectures by local physicians in June, focusing on rotator cuff injuries and
acid reflux disease. Both lectures will take place at the VNA & Hospice of
Northern Berkshire in the Community Room, 535 Curran Highway (Route 8),
North Adams. Chi Zhang, M.D., a gastroenterologist, will speak on Tuesday, June 7
at 7 p.m. Dr. Zhang's discussion will focus on acid reflux disease and
heartburn. Acid reflux disease is experienced by many Americans but is a
treatable condition. Dr. Zhang joined the NARH Medical Staff in 2004 and is
fellowship-trained in gastroenterology. He also holds a Ph.D. in
neuroscience from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.
Suk Namkoong, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon with Orthopedic Associates of
Northern Berkshire, will speak on Tuesday, June 14 at 7 p.m. and will focus
on rotator cuff tears and treatment. Rotator cuff tears are most common in
people over 40 but can also occur in younger people following acute trauma
or repetitive overhead activity or sports activity. Dr. Namkoong is fellowship-trained
in sports medicine. He is a graduate of Princeton University and earned his
medical degree from New York University School of Medicine.
Both talks are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will
be served
