Trauma continues to be the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the 10-44 age group, killing more young Americans than cancer, heart disease, and stroke combined. Trauma claims a life every six minutes and is responsible for serious disability every three seconds. Yet more people are surviving critical injuries than ever before. This is due to the training of expert trauma care providers with advanced trauma skills.

We are pleased to coordinate professional educational opportunities for trauma physicians, nurses, and emergency medical professionals.

Southeastern Med is a Central Ohio Trauma System (COTS) member. This program is coordinated with the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA), which is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio, Nov. 3, 2010 – November is American Diabetes Month, and to celebrate, the diabetes educators at Southeastern Med will present Celebrate Diabetes and the Holidays on Monday, Nov. 15 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., in Southeastern Med’s Morrison, Amos and Deddish rooms.

The evening will begin with a Diabetes Fair from 5:30 to 6:30 pm, featuring vendors from diabetes supply companies and area programs and services of interest to people with diabetes. The fair is free and open to the public.

After the fair, join Southeastern Med’s Outpatient Dietitian and Diabetes Educator, Sharon Graff-Harrison, MS, RD, LD, CDE, at Celebrate Diabetes and the Holidays Too to learn how to prepare healthy versions of traditional holiday recipes and sample new recipes.

“Think healthy lifestyle, not restrictions to build a healthier body,” said Graff-Harrison. “Those with diabetes can eat, drink and be merry in appropriate portions and moderate amounts. Although you may have diabetes, everyday can still be a holiday celebration.”

Registration is required for the Celebrate Diabetes and the Holidays Too portion of the evening and participation is limited. For more information or to register, call the Wellness Resources Department at Southeastern Med at 740-435-2946.
