As many as 40 percent of Americans are affected by gastric reflux. Kansas University Medical Center is offering a free program on how to deal with gastroesophageal reflux disease and heartburn at 10 a.m. Wednesday in the Wyandotte Room, located just off the main hospital cafeteria.
The Med Center is located at 3901 Rainbow Blvd., Kansas City, Kan.
The majority of GERD cases can be handled by occasional medication usage or new, less-invasive surgical procedures. Dr. Michael Moncure, assistant professor in the School of Medicine, will present treatment options available for those who have gastric reflux or heartburn.
The program is free, but registration is required.
