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 on our website at under Visions for Total Health Conference 2006.

Free screenings, demonstrations, and displays will be available to the public during the event, which will last from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information about the conference or how to become a sponsor, please contact Leila McCann, Visions for Total Health Coordinator, at 410-641-9268.
