Lunch and Learn with Dr. Keith Winstead | August 3

Posted on July 25, 2018

Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and brittle — so brittle that a fall or even bending over or coughing can cause a fracture. Osteoporosis related fractures most commonly occur in the hip, wrist or spine. Osteoporosis affects men and women of all races. But white and Asian women, especially older women who are past menopause, are at highest risk. Medications, healthy diet and weight-bearing exercise can help prevent bone loss or strengthen already weak bones.

To learn more about osteoporosis, South Central Regional Medical Center invites you to attend our monthly luncheon on Friday, August 3rd. Our newest Obstetrician-Gynecologist, Keith Winstead, Jr., DO, will discuss the causes, effects and risk factors associated with osteoporosis.

Dr. Winstead completed medical school at William Carey University and his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Beaumont Hospital, a division of Michigan State University College of Medicine. Dr. Winstead joins the healthcare providers at OB-GYN Group of Laurel.

Lunch is $8.50 per person and provided by Southern Style Catering. To make a reservation for the luncheon, please call 601-399-0506 or email kvanderslice@scrmc.com. The event will be held at South Central Place, located at 2260 HWY 15 North in Laurel.
