Sonora area residents gathered at the Opera Hall in downtown Sonora Wednesday night to learn about better health, cancer care, nutrition and health problem prevention.
The Spring Health Forum, sponsored by Sonora Community Hospital, featured nearly a dozen speakers, each with their own area of health expertise, as well as information booths and displays by area businesses and health related companies.
Sonora Community Hospital´s Craig Wilcox said this is the first time the hospital has presented health care information to the community this way.
The forum was an opportunity for men and women in the community to hear speakers, but also ask questions about personal health care.
Among guest presenters were Dr. Lawrence Brunel, Dr. Jay Rohn, Pat Kahler, Dr. James Sweetland, Dr. Gary Young, Jodie Rodriquez, Danielle Goodwin, Dr. William Kalichman and Mari Granger.
Wilcox says he hopes to present similar health forums in the future.
