Board-certified gastroenterologist Nicholas Jarmoszuk, M.D. to present “You are what you eat: The impact of diet on your digestive health” on Wednesday, July 17 at the Mercy Health and Recreation Center in Amherst

(LORAIN) – On Wednesday, July 17 board-certified gastroenterologist Nicholas Jarmoszuk, M.D. will be presenting a free seminar, “You are what you eat: The impact of your diet on your digestive health”.

The event takes place at the Mercy Health and Recreation Center in Amherst and will begin at 5:30 p.m. The evening will feature dinner and raffle prizes.

The seminar will focus on the role that diet plays in digestive health while delving into why digestive health is such an important part of your overall health. The seminar is designed to empower people to take more responsibility for their digestive health by providing them with practical advice and education.

While the digestive system is unglamorous and easily overlooked, taking proper care of this essential system is key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. An individual’s digestive health can be indicative of their overall health. Proper digestive health maintenance can even be life-saving because, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS), more than 140,000 Americans are diagnosed with colorectal cancer.

Committing to a healthy diet is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of colon cancer, but the best way to prevent colon cancer mortality is to have a screening colonoscopy. More than 90 percent of this type of cancer occurs in adults over the age of 50. To learn more about the role that diet plays in digestive health, what you can do to decrease your risk of colorectal cancer and have your questions answered by Dr. Jarmoszuk, please join us on July 17.

While the event is free, reservations are requested. Please call 1-877-247-6161 to reserve your spot at the July 17 event. For more information about the gastroenterological offerings available from Mercy, please visit www.mercyonline.org.
