The next in a series of “Heathy U” programs sponsored by Cass County Health Systems will take place Thursday, June 25th, beginning at noon, in Conference Room 2 at the Cass County Memorial Hospital, in Atlantic.
Elaine Berry, M.D.
Guest speaker is Dr. Elaine Berry, who will address the topic of “End of Life Care.”
End of life care is a difficult topic, but knowing your loved one’s wishes, or having your own wishes known, can make this time easier to navigate for all. Dr. Berry will discuss the issues involved and answer questions. Dr. Berry joined Atlantic Medical Center in 1988, where she provides the full spectrum of family medical care. She has served as medical director of Cass County Hospice since 1990, and in 2008 became the only certified Hospice and Palliative Care Physician in southwest Iowa. Dr. Berry also serves as the medical director of Cass County Emergency Services and is the Cass County Medical Examiner.
Healthy U is a free educational series that focuses on a different health topic each month. Medical professionals present an educational program and attendees receive a healthy sack lunch to enjoy during the program. Future topics will include dementia, joint health, and diabetes.
