Med School Café - Expert Advice for the Community

Last week, Dr. Rosina Connelly, assistant professor of pediatrics at the USA College of Medicine and a pediatrician with USA Physicians Group, presented the November Med School Café lecture, "Just What Did the Doctor Say? Tips on Communicating with Your Health Care Providers."

According to Dr. Connelly, limited health literacy skills affect more than 70 million American adults and result in poorer health outcomes. At the lecture, Dr. Connelly included tips on learning how to better communicate with health care providers and how to get the most out of a medical encounter.

The next Med School Cafe lecture will be held on Dec. 17, 2013, and will feature Dr. Brooks Cash, professor of internal medicine at USA and a gastroenterologist with USA Physicians Group. Dr. Cash is a new faculty member who previously served as the Deputy Commander for Medicine at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. At the lecture, Dr. Cash will discuss irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
