The Healthy U For Living conference is coming to Patrick Henry Community College (PHCC) on Wednesday, April 26, sponsored by the Alliance for Excellence – an organization for educational attainment.

The event begins at 10 a.m. in the Walker Fine Arts theater on the Martinsville campus and features three interactive sessions on the treatment and prevention of common health issues. The event is free and open to the public.

Dr. Caren T. Aaron, MD starts off the conference with a presentation on Mammography from 10 to 11 a.m.

Amy Webster, BSN, MSN will follow discussing Colon Health from 11 a.m. to noon.
