A first in a series of community health talks will be held on Thursday, June 27, at 6 pm.

The program, sponsored by Northern Light AR Gould Hospital, will be held at the Northern Light Health Center on Bennett Drive in Caribou.

Jared Kohlbacher, DPM, a surgical podiatrist at the hospital, will be kicking off this inaugural Community Health Talk Session. Kohlbacher splits his time between seeing patients n both the Orthopedics office in Presque Isle and at the Health Center in Caribou.

Laura Turner, director of community outreach, thinks this was a perfect way to kick off what is intended to be four to six talks a year, because Kohlbacher is on the provider team that came up with the idea of offering periodic informal talks within the community.

This Community Health Talk is free and open to the public.  No preregistration is necessary.  Just show up at the Northern Light Health Center in Caribou for the 6 pm talk.  The Health Center is located in the shopping center at 118 Bennett Drive.
