Irritable bowel syndrome, heartburn, constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating — almost every intestinal problem that seems to occur as we age was covered at The Greens at Cannondale’s most recent Community Health Series. Dr. Mae Tighe, gastroenterologist with Western Connecticut Medical Group, trained at Yale, Cornell and a graduate of Johns Hopkins Medical Center, was the presenter.
One of the outstanding features of a Greens Community Health session is the fact that speakers are chosen who know the most recent information about the topic. This often reverses commonly held notions. Everyone’s digestive tract is different. People have different food sensitivities, different digestive histories. Tighe’s goal was to provide information that would help in the personal management of common problems.
