Physician Addresses Liver Disease on Delmarva at 2006 Health Conference
Liver disease is a major cause of death in the United States and is responsible
for more loss of life than such common cancers as breast, colon or prostate.
It is an exceptionally important health issue in the tri-county area of
Worcester, Wicomico and Somerset, where alcoholism occurs at a greater
rate than the national average.
The 2006 Visions for Total Health Conference will address liver disease
with a breakout session conducted by Lee Klepper, MD, of Atlantic Gastroenterology.
Depending on when alcoholism and liver disease is diagnosed, sufferers
can slow down or even stop the harmful effects to their bodies.
To learn more about liver diseases and how they are diagnosed and treated,
please join Dr. Klepper for his breakout session at the Visions for Total
Health 2006 conference.
The 2006 Visions for Total Health Conference will take place on Saturday,
August 26, 2006 at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center in Ocean City.
Thirteen speakers, including nationally known journalist and physician
Dr. Bob Arnot who will give the keynote address on “Being Your Personal
Best,” will give presentations on topics related to traditional
medicine, alternative healthcare, and environmental health.
The agenda and specific information on the presentations will be provided
