For the second year in a row, Dr. Robert Huff is offering injury evaluation and treatment services to athletes every Saturday morning during the fall season from August 30th through November 1st. Dr. Huff, a sports medicine specialist, will be on site to assess and treat sports injuries.
The clinic will be open from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. for athletes to be seen on a first come, first served basis with no appointment necessary.
All insurance information and co-pays are needed upon arrival, including private/primary insurance or the school insurance claim forms.
This clinic gives athletes a faster, less expensive option when injuries occur and it also helps to avoid typically long wait times at emergency rooms. So remember, if your athlete suffers an injury, now you have an alternative to the emergency room. Dr. Huff's Saturday morning Sports Injury Clinic is ready and waiting. Southeastern Med's Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Facility is located at 10095 Brick Church Rd, Cambridge.

On Wednesday, September 10th, 2014, Southeastern Med's Wellness Resources Department, will be offering a bone density screening at the Community HealthLink from 8-10 a.m. The Community HealthLink is located on the corner of Clark Street and Edgeworth Avenue in Cambridge.
The screening, which is a safe, painless, and accurate procedure, detects decreases in bone mass. These decreases are an indicator of osteoporosis, a bone weakening disease affecting 1 in 4 women. If detected early, osteoporosis can be treated.
Participants are asked to wear shoes and socks that are easily removed. The screening will require participants to place one of their feet upon the machine that will be used for the procedure, which normally requires 5-10 minutes to complete. Chelsea Master, Community Dietician with Southeastern Med, will be discussing the results for each individual.
This screening is only for women. Those 40 and older who have not had a bone density screening within two years, or have not been diagnosed with either osteoporosis or low bone mass, may participate. The fee is $10 per person and appointments are required. Walk-ins will not be permitted. Participants may make appointments by calling Wellness Resources at 435-2946, beginning Monday, August 27, 2014 at 9:00 a.m.
High school students interested in learning about careers in the medical field are invited to attend Medical Explorers on Sept. 17 at 6 p.m., at Southeastern Med, 1341 Clark St., in Cambridge.
Medical Explorers provides young adults with the chance to learn about a variety of medical careers from healthcare professionals, as well as participate in hands-on activities designed to familiarize them with a specific aspect of medicine.
"It's an excellent opportunity for our area youth," said Marti Reed, advisor for Medical Explorers. "Many of our students came to Medical Explorers unsure if they wanted a career in the medical field. After attending the sessions, they were able to make the necessary plans for their future education and career. I have enjoyed helping these young people start down their educational path. I am also very proud of our professionals here at Southeastern Med who are willing to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for their various careers. Medical Explorers allows students to view, behind the scenes, what each department's role is in the Medical Center."
Explorers must be at least 14 years old in grades 9-12 to participate. Monthly meetings will be held from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Oct. 22; Nov. 19; and Dec. 17. The cost to of the program is $15. For more information or to request a registration packet, please call Marti Reed at 740-439-8168.

Join breast cancer awareness supporters from across the region for the fourth annual Breast Cancer Awareness Poker Run to be held on July 26, 2014.
This poker run is organized by the Armed Forces Motorcycle Club. You don’t have to ride a motorcycle to participate, but you must use a street-legal vehicle, such as a car or a bicycle. Participants will drive a route and stop at various checkpoints to collect a playing card. The goal is to have the best poker hand at the end of the run. A cash prize will be awarded to both the highest and the lowest hands at the end of the ride.
Registration will begin at 10:30 am at Park Circle Café in Cambridge. You’ll be assigned a departure time, and the last rider/vehicle out will be at noon. All participants should be at the final stop, Airport Tavern in Lore City, at 5 pm.
The cost to participate is $15 per person, which covers the poker run, dinner, great entertainment and a ticket for the door prize drawing. Participants will also be able to purchase tickets for a raffle drawing. Raffle prizes include a muzzleloader with scope, gas grill, and two $100 Harley-Davidson gift certificates.
All funds raised will benefit Southeastern Med’s Power Me Pink program, which provides women in the Cambridge, OH area with free mammograms, transportation to and from breast cancer treatment, and other services. We hope to raise $10,000 during this year’s event.
Your support makes a world of difference for breast cancer patients and our community.
