Public Health Lecture about Hypertension February 18

Do you or a family member have questions about hypertension?

“Hypertension” will be the focus of a public health lecture at Northeast Alabama Community College (NACC) next Wednesday, February 18, at 12:00 noon in the Health Education Building (Room 106) on the NACC campus. This is the fourth in a series of free public lectures on health issues for interested people in the College’s service area. The lecture will be presented by Dr. Thomas Horton of Rainsville. Following the lecture will be a question and answer session.

“Providing lectures for the public on health issues is one way that we are pursuing the goal of even a more vital role in our community in regard to health care,” stated NACC President Dr. David Campbell. Campbell noted that this mission adds to the College’s fundamental and extremely important role of training health care workers to serve community needs. “Our new building has the name Health Education Center in it. We want the Center to be exactly that – a place in our community where people can obtain education on all kinds of health care needs, both in regard to educational training as well as information for the public that we provide through our lecture series. We like to think that we are expanding the definition of health care education at the community college level by providing this lecture series for the public and our students and staff.”
