The occasional strike of heartburn comes and goes without much concern for many individuals. A traditional remedy of over-the-counter antacids can usually relieve discomfort. However, there is an underlying health risk for those who suffer from heartburn more regularly, and experts at Northwest Community Healthcare (NCH) want people to know about it before it’s too late.
Join Gastroenterologist Willis Parsons, MD, on Thursday, April 12, from 6 p.m. – 7 p.m. at Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights for “Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) – Not Always a Benign Problem.” Dr. Parsons will explain the serious health issues and cancer risk caused by chronic heartburn and GERD, including Barrett’s esophagus, a pre-cancerous condition that can lead to esophageal cancer – the most rapidly rising cancer in the United States. He will review facts and symptoms, suggest when to consult a physician and explain diagnostic procedures and treatment options.
To learn more about heartburn, GERD and Barrett’s esophagus, register for this free seminar by calling 847.618.4YOU (4968), or visit www.nch.org/heartburn.CLEAR SKIES?  Weather Data for Wednesday, April 11th, 2012
