Ask an Expert: Gastrointestinal Health

May 17, 2011

Kevin S. Skole, MD, a board certified gastroenterologist, will discuss gastrointestinal issues and take questions from a live Internet audience when Princeton HealthCare System (PHCS) hosts its next Web chat on Thursday, May 19.

The Web chat, which begins at 7 p.m., will be the latest in a series of such events by PHCS to give consumers access to seminars hosted by medical professionals without leaving their homes. The chats are hosted on PHCS' UStream channel: www.ustream.tv/channel/princetonhealth.

Dr. Skole will discuss the signs, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options for a variety of gastrointestinal problems, such as acid reflux, gastroesophogeal reflux (GERD), Crohn's Disease, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, and liver health.

To participate in the Web chat, users will need a PC or MAC with a broadband Internet connection and Adobe Flash Player installed. Download the latest Adobe Flash Player at http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Participants will be required to log in or create a new account at the site to ask questions. To pre-register, call (888) 897-8979 or visit www.princetonhcs.org/calendar.

Those who register will be entered in a random drawing immediately following the Web chat for one of several $25 gift cards.
