Heartburn and acid reflux are no fun for anyone, especially when they interfere with our daily routines and sleep patterns. If your diet is heavy on antacids these days, join Rajesh Joseph, MD, a gastroenterologist and internist on staff at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital, for Putting Out the Reflux Fire, a free seminar that will cover ways to help ease the pain of esophageal problems such as GERD.
Dr. Joseph earned his medical degree from Northeastern Ohio University College of Medicine in Roostown, Ohio. He then completed his residency in categorical internal medicine at Akron City Hospital/Summa Health System in Akron, Ohio, and his fellowship in gastroenterology at MetroHealth Medical Center/Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Prior to joining the staff of Lake Charles Memorial Hospital, Dr. Joseph practiced gastroenterology and hepatology at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Cleveland, Ohio.
Putting Out the Reflux Fire will be held Thursday, June 23 at 12 noon in the Shearman Conference Center at Memorial Hospital on Oak Park Boulevard. A light lunch will be served, and reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance.
