The Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club has launched a monthly series called “Dinner with the Doctor” to aid health education in the community. Free and open to the public, it takes place at the Brooklyn Marriott, 333 Adams Street. The series is moderated by Rotary Club charter member Cara Lubin, M.D.
The series kicked off October 11 with a discussions on dementia by Brooklyn Heights neurologist Dr. Richard Lechtenberg, a 35-year medical veteran. The second, Thursday November 8, will feature cardiologist Ozgen Dogan, M.D., also based in the Heights, on “Prevention in Heart Disease.” Subsequent lectures will cover breast cancer, erectile dysfunction, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, colon cancer, Parkinson’s disease, hypertension and weight loss.
Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club president Vivian Hardison, tells NY1, “Sometimes, in a doctor’s office, there is no time to really ask questions. At this format, you can ask as many questions as you like in a relaxed environment.” For information, see the Rotary Club’s website here or email Hardison here.
The mission of the Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club is to provide a venue for Rotarians to grow and develop in humanitarian spirit while providing service to others. The motto of Rotary International is “Service Above Self.”
