Spring Community Speaker Series
Laura Taylor, MSPAS, PA-C, will bring her experience with older adults to our Community Speaker Series for a talk about the most common skin related complaints that come with the aging process. Laura will tell us about what she sees in her office on a regular basis with patients over 50. She’ll review the most common conditions and concerns along with treatment options and when to worry. She hopes to bring better awareness and education to the community to help aid people in being more proactive with their health care.
