COLE BAY–Dr. Tasika Bell is giving a reminder that the third session of her “Ask the Doctor” series takes place this coming Saturday, February 24, 2018, at the Soualiga Medical Practice, Diamond Drive #1, Cole Bay, from 10:00am to 11:00am.

This session will discuss “High Blood Pressure, myths and truths. Did you know that you can feel fine and have high blood pressure?” Important information will be given to attendees followed by a question and answer session and the possibility of a one-to-one chat with the doctor for a blood pressure measurement.

The “Ask the Doctor” series is about making the right choices and taking steps to improve your health. The Monday, February 19, session was titled “What’s Your Main Health Concern?” and discussed getting answers to health questions and concerns. She informed the engaged audience on the importance of thinking ahead where health is concerned by getting to know your health risks so that you can lower those risks and prevent all types of illnesses and reoccurrences.

On Wednesday, February 21, attendees were asked “Are you steering your doctor in the wrong direction?” This session emphasized the importance of giving your doctor the right information, so the correct diagnosis can be made.

Dr. Bell thanked the French-side based Business and Professional Women (BPW) Concordia of St. Martin for its collaboration and contribution to the series and Alex Piper for setting up the tent.

Dr. Bell has been a medical doctor for more than 17 years and a family physician for seven years. Her medical practice is located on Union Road, across from the Friendly Island Pharmacy and ORCO Bank plaza.

The health sessions are free of charge for the public.
