Living Healthy events at Methodist Hospital | Health
Methodist Hospital’s next two Living Healthy events will feature Dr. Judith Canlas, physiatrist, in February, and her sister, Dr. Karen Canlas, gastroenterologist, in March. These two programs were scheduled back-to-back with a specific goal in mind: start a fitness regimen and then participate in a 5K run/walk to raise awareness about colorectal cancer.
Physiatrist Dr. Judith Canlas will present “Exercise: Just What the Doctor Ordered” on February 12, and her sister, Gastroenterologist Dr. Karen Canlas will present “Myths of Gastric Health” on March 12, which marks national colorectal cancer awareness month.
Dr. Judith Canlas prescribes exercise as part of your regular health regimen and will partner with Methodist Hospital Therapy Services to offer demonstrations of healthy movement and postures.
Then, on March 12, Dr. Karen Canlas will present “Myths of Gastric Health.” Colon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in men and women combined in the United States. Two contributing factors are sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy diet.
Both presentations culminate on March 16 with the first annual “Get Your Rear in Gear” 5K run/walk scheduled for March 16 at Methodist Hospital. More information on this event can be found at www.methodisthospital.net under the “News and Events” link.
Both Living Healthy events will take place in the lower level of the Methodist Hospital North Tower, Therapy Services Department. Refreshments will be provided and seating is limited, so please RSVP your attendance to 831-7836 by phone or to firstname.lastname@example.org by email.
