The sessions begin on November 4 with a panel of orthopedic surgeons: Paul Lane, MD; Michael Clark, MD; Brook Bearden, MD; Matthew Heaton, MD and Curt Starling, MD. On November 13, a panel of cardiac experts include: Trey Powell, MD; Glenn Evans, MD; Doug Luke, MD; and Randy Brown, MD.

The following Tuesday on November 18, a podiatry/vascular panel will include: Pearce Futch, DPM; Nic Dodson, DPM; Devin Daugherty, DPM; Tim Pitts, DPM; Rodney Raker, DPM; Andy Woods, DPM; and Vascular Surgeon Maurice Solis, MD. The last panel on Thursday, November 20 will feature urologists Mike Chiang, MD; Jacek Sosnowski, MD; and David Sule, MD.SGMC CEO Randy Sauls said, “The physicians are generously donating their time to provide this open forum for health information.

I encourage men in our community to be educated on these important health topics. Too often, men not only fail to get routine check-ups or preventive care but often ignore symptoms or delay seeking medical attention when ill or in pain.”For more information, visit or contact Chuck Roberts at 229-333-1076.
