Postponed "Why Integrating Care Is The Healthy Thing To Do" Program Rescheduled for November 5

"Why Integrating Care Is The Healthy Thing To Do" is the topic of a rescheduled "Mini-Medical School" educational program postponed because of inclement weather. The program will now be offered on November 5 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:20 p.m. in the Androscoggin Room at the Auburn Public Library.

Catherine Ryder, executive director of Tri-County Mental Health Services (TCMHS), will be the featured speaker. Her presentation will be followed at 6:30 by "Population Health: What Does It Mean For Our Community?" with Heidi Mallis, district field epidemiologist with the Maine Center for Disease Control. Mallis's presentation was previously scheduled for this time slot.

Ryder has worked for TCMHS for some 20 years, including work as director of clinical services in which she developed care models that align with the principles of healthcare reform. She is a licensed clinical professional counselor who holds a master's degree in counselor education. She is also a nationally certified counselor, and an approved clinical supervisor. She has completed a certificate program in primary care behavioral health and recently graduated from the Hanley Leadership Development program for healthcare leaders in Maine.

The final Mini-Medical School program, set for November 12, is "The Obesity Epidemic" with bariatric surgeon Jamie Loggins, M.D.

All Mini-Medical School presentations are being offered at no charge.

Interpreter services are available upon advance request.
