The October program spotlights the importance of cancer screenings. Attendees will hear from surgeons Dr. Harvey Miller, Dr. Harold Howe, and Dr. James Shoptaw as they discuss the importance of screenings and a healthy lifestyle and how these factors can prevent or detect cancer early. Breast cancer, colorectal cancer, and lung cancer screenings will be emphasized. 
The November session recognizes National Hospice Month featuring Dr. Thomas Hobby, Hospice of South Georgia (HOSG) Medical Director and physician at SGMC Valdosta Medical Clinic. Dr. Hobby will explore the various aspects of end-of-life care and the holistic approach taken by HOSG.
