The series will feature monthly lectures in three categories: “Growing Pains,” which will offer information on children’s health and parenting; “Women’s Wellness,” addressing women’s health issues; and “Aging Gracefully,” in which experts offer advice on topics for health and wellness in the senior years.
Speakers will include physicians and health professionals from Good Samaritan’s staff. Each lecture will be held in a different venue within the West Islip community.
