In this two-act Skit, “A Life or Death Matter,” the plot centers on a woman who is at a critical point in her health. Her health numbers show that she is at risk for a number of cardiovascular diseases. Her primary care physician has been working with her for eight years trying to get her to modify her health behavior. The doctor is at her wit's end and wants to put the woman on additional medication to help in reducing her health numbers. The woman asks the doctor to let her try making some changes in her health regimen during a three-month period. The doctor agrees and gives the woman one more chance to get her health together by changing her lifestyle.

The skit will be followed by an expert panel discussion on the aspects of the play: ”What it takes to change your behavior and live a healthy life.” The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from the panel.

Come prepared to have an enjoyable, educational afternoon! You will be encouraged and empowered with the skills to have optimum health and quality of life.

Panel Members include Medical Internist, and Cardiologist, Patricia Davidson, MD, FACP; Nutritionist, Rev. Sherma Brisseau, RD LN, and Family Therapist, Beverly R. Sargent, Ph.D., NCC, LCPC, ACS.
