Events

 

Patient and caregiver educational events have been a key component of the St. Luke’s philosophy since Dr. James Gills first began his practice in 1968. The doctors at St. Luke’s use the latest techniques and technology in their care of patients and we strive to ensure that each patient is directly involved in their treatment plan and aware of potential challenges, successes and outcome possibilities. In addition prevention and early detection of eye, hearing and skin conditions are often directly correlated to the effectiveness of treatment. For these reasons St. Luke’s holds regular educational events for the public.

 

Events are held onsite at the various St. Luke’s locations – see descriptions for dates, times and locations. A light lunch is served. All sessions are offered at no cost. Make your reservation using the RSVP button.
