The Women’s Center at Advocate BroMenn Medical Center will hold a “Dessert with the Doctor” presentation about metabolic syndrome Thursday, May 23, from 6:30 pm to 8 pm at Advocate BroMenn Medical Center, 1304 Franklin Avenue, Normal.
Metabolic syndrome is a combination of medical disorders that, when occurring together, can increase the risk of heart disease. These conditions include high blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and high cholesterol levels. Dr. Dory Jarzabkowski, a cardiologist with Advocate Medical Group – Illinois Heart & Lung, will discuss these conditions and discuss how to prevent them. A question-and-answer session and dessert will follow the presentation.
