Good Shepherd talk to focus on preventing cancer
BARRINGTON – Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital will host the final event of its fall lecture series, “Minimize Your Cancer Risk with Simple Lifestyle Changes,” from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Dec. 18.
The guest speaker, Thomas Weyburn, a board-certified oncologist and member of Advocate Physician Partners, will discuss ways to reduce one’s risk by eating a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight and staying physically active.
“The prevention of cancer is not a simple concept, and there are many false claims about preventative measures,” Weyburn said in a news release. “The lecture will examine the proven prevention strategies and answer all of your cancer and risk-related questions.”
The event is free to attend and will be in the Prairie/Meadow rooms at Good Shepherd Hospital, 450 W. Route 22, Barrington.
