Pomerene Hospital October Health Talk Presented by Dr. Loren Kirchner


Pomerene Hospital’s upcoming Health Talk will take place at Keim Lumber in Charm on Monday, October 23 from 6-7 pm.


The talk, titled “What’s In Your Gut? Gut Flora: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” will be presented by Pomerene Internal Medicine physician, Loren M. Kirchner, MD, MS, FACP.


In this introductory talk on gut flora, Dr. Kirchner will discuss what it is, where it comes from, and what it does. How does gut flora affect the body in both good and bad ways? What else besides diet controls what lives in the GI tract? At this talk, attendees can find out more about gut flora and how some simple nutritional and lifestyle changes can improve one’s overall health.
