Winona State University will host Mayo Clinic cancer specialist Edward T. Creagan, MD, FAAHPM, in “How to Survive the Stress of Life in the 21st Century” at noon Friday, Oct. 3, in the East Hall of Kryzsko Commons.
Dr. Creagan brings a message of prevention based on the advice in his new book, “How Not to Be My Patient: A Physician’s Secrets for Staying Health and Surviving Any Diagnosis.” During his talk, he will discuss his eight commandments for living well: how to talk so your doctor will listen in an age of changing and confusing medical delivery, how to get the most from your 16 minutes in the exam room, and the amazing healing power of pets.
Dr. Creagan is a professor at the Mayo Clinic Medical School and was awarded the prestigious title of President of the Mayo staff by his colleagues. He holds two endowed chairs in humanism in medicine, and he was the first palliative and hospice specialist on staff at Mayo.
The noon presentation will be followed by a Q&A session, “Ask Dr. Ed.” Copies of his book will be available for purchase at the event and in the WSU Bookstore.
The event is free and open to the public.
