At UMDNJ-School of Osteopathic Medicine
“Getting the Most from Your Doctor Visit” Subject of Free Lecture on August 21
CHERRY HILL — There may be nothing more natural than two people discussing a mutual interest, but this natural process seems to break down when those two people happen to be a physician and a patient. A recent report from the national Institute of Medicine said that half of all American adults have trouble understanding and using health information they get from their physician.
Dr. Michael Voyack, an assistant professor of Family Medicine at the UMDNJ-School of Osteopathic M medicine, will provide tips on how patients and physicians can improve their communications during a free lecture, “Getting the Most from Your Doctor Visit,” on Monday, August 21, from 10 to 11 a.m., at the Cherry Hill Public Library, 1100 Kings Highway North, in Cherry Hill.
Registration is required and can be made by calling the UMDNJ-School of Osteopathic Medicine at (856) 566-6207 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
