Monday, September 12, 2022 Solving Those Medical Mysteries
Our very own President, Judy Haluka will take a look at common medical and traumatic situations and what they mean to us. Do I need to go to the Emergency Room? Is a Convenient Care Visit Enough? Can I wait until next week when I can see my Doctor? Once I decide, what are they likely to do? Can I adopt a PET Scan at the Humane Society? What is this “test” that they ordered? How is it done? What will it tell me? Is it necessary? Judy has a unique way of looking at serious subjects with humor. She will give us valuable healthcare and first aid information while keeping us laughing at ourselves.
Judy is the Emergency Management Coordinator for Aleppo Township. She spent 30 years in the Interventional Cardiology Laboratory at Allegheny General Hospital. In addition, she is a Paramedic and has been affiliated with Valley & Quaker Valley Ambulance Authority for 30+ years.
