On May 18th, Westview Health Care Center launched its first in a series of informative health education programs for members of the community entitled, "The Backbone To Good Health and Happiness," presented by The Center For Bone and Joint Care.
The orthopedic team from The Center For Bone and Joint Care provided valuable information to over 65 attendees on a variety of topics, which included Total Joint Replacement, The Aging Athlete, Shoulder Injuries and Carpal Tunnel injuries.
"The Center for Bone & Joint Care has been providing quality orthopedic and musculoskeletal care for the residents of northeastern Connecticut since its establishment in 1992," stated practice manager Donald St. Onge. "Collaborating with Westview to offer this important educational program provides another opportunity for our board certified surgeons to connect with our communities."
