Lecture: New findings in anti-aging debate

You may not be able to stop aging, but you can certainly slow the process. That’s the good news Beaufort Memorial Internist Philip Cusumano, MD, will share on Wednesday, March 7, when he presents “New Findings in the Anti-Aging Debate” at Magnolia Hall in Sun City.
The free lecture is open to the public and will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. Light hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served at 4:30 p.m. Registration is required.
Based on the best-selling book, “YOU — Staying Young,” by Drs. Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz, Dr. Cusumano’s lecture will explore major causes of aging, nature’s best anti-aging ‘medicines,’ gene expression and how to control it, and practical changes anyone can adopt to make major gains in health, wellness and longevity.
“There is a widespread belief that our genes have the final say in our ability to become and stay healthy, but it’s simply not true,” says Dr. Cusumano, a board-certified internist formerly with the Cleveland Clinic, who recently joined Beaufort Memorial Lady’s Island Internal Medicine. “Three-quarters of our health issues are caused by our own behaviors and lifestyle choices — not our genes.”
The lecture is part of a new “Life, Lived Better” community series hosted by Beaufort Memorial LifeFit Wellness Services. Series lectures focus on overall wellness, prevention, and health improvements for the best quality of life, and will be held throughout the year.
Future seminars include “Back in Action: Solving Hip and Knee Pain,” scheduled for Apr. 4 and featuring two of the area’s top orthopedic surgeons, Drs. Edward Blocker and Kevin Jones.  They will discuss common causes of joint pain, how early diagnosis can solve pain issues, effective non-surgical treatments for joint pain, and the latest innovative, minimally invasive surgical procedures.
The events are free, but registration is required. To register for “New Findings in the Anti-Aging Debate” or “Back in Action: Solving Hip and Knee Pain,” call the Beaufort Memorial Hospital registration line at (843) 522-5585, or toll-free at (888) 522-5585.
