"A majority of the top killers in America--such as heart disease, cancer, obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure leading to stroke, arthritis, depression and addictions--come from lifestyle issues," said Joon W. Rhee, MD, PhD, MPH, a faculty member of Loma Linda School of Medicine & Public Health, and director of the JWRhee Wellness Clinic in Redlands.
In fast-paced evening sessions at the Pasadena City College Sexson Auditorium (1570 East Colorado Blvd.) January 25-29, Rhee's presentations will pair chronic health conditions with affordable lifestyle solutions. Admission is free and free parking will be available in the college's parking structures on So. Bonnie Ave. Rhee's conversational presentations, which will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. each evening, will focus on the "how to" of overcoming or avoiding lifestyle problems with lifestyle solutions. "The goal of the presentations is for participants to become motivated with the latest findings on how one can transform one's life," Rhee noted.
