Do you want to discuss your training schedule for next year’s Peachtree Road Race with Emory orthopedist Amadeus Mason?

Are you a smoker who would like to ask Emory oncologist Taofeek Owonikoko about the best screening for lung cancer for those in a high-risk group? Are you a woman who wants to ask Emory cardiologist Ijeoma Isiadinso how heart disease symptoms differ from men to women?

Now patients don’t have to wait for their next appointment to talk with an Emory physician about a health topic of concern. Emory Healthcare is offering live web chats to allow community members opportunities to interact in real time on the web with Emory doctors.

The chats cover a range of topics, from heart health to cancer to musculoskeletal questions.

To preview upcoming live chats or for transcripts of past chats, visit emoryhealthcare.org/doctor-chats/index.html. Patients also can suggest their own topics at emoryhealthcare.org/doctor-chats/request-topic.html.
