Brown to Co-Host Neurological Health Seminar with Pocono Medical Center
EAST STOUDSBURG – Rep. Rosemary M. Brown (R-Monroe/Pike) will co-host a Neurological Health Seminar on Thursday, Oct. 29, from 6-8 p.m., in the Stroud and Brodhead Room at the Pocono Medical Center, located at 206 East Brown St., in East Stroudsburg.

“As a member of the House Alzheimer’s Caucus, I am very pleased to have a role in this event, and to have a hand in providing important information and education on neurological conditions,” Brown said. “Bringing education to people is key on all issues and health is no exception.”

Brown, who is co-hosting this event with Pocono Medical Center, said the seminar will provide a forum for individuals to discuss and learn more about Tourette’s syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, strokes and neurological conditions.

In an ongoing effort to work with the community to offer the most advanced resources in total healthcare, Pocono Medical Center’s Medical Director of Neurology, Dr. Sowmya Lakshminarayanan, will be attending as a panelist to offer her expert knowledge of neurological health and the importance of being mindful.

“Risk of having stroke and dementia increases with age,” said Dr. Lakshminarayanan. “Stroke is a neurological condition and dementia is a chronic one; however, both are closely linked and research has shown stroke prevention as a means for staving off memory problems.”

Brown will moderate a panel consisting of the following medical professionals:
• Mahesh Chhabria, M.D. Neurology, neurology Associates of Monroe County.
• Sowmya Lakshminarayanan, M.D., medical director of Neurology, Pocono Medical Center.
• Sherrie Sponseller, administrator, PA Tourette Syndrome Alliance.

Questions can be submitted anonymously by visiting in advance of the event. Pre-registration is required by calling Brown’s office in advance at 570-420-8301. Light refreshments will be available.
