Welcome to Dine With a Doc ®
The Dine with a Doc® program was designed to allow the seniors to get out of their homes, fellowship with their peers, extend their available financial resources, promote enhanced living, and educate them (from a preventative standpoint) with the goal of ensuring their quality of life and providing them with the resources and information to make an informed choice about their healthcare. (At times, as seniors express an interest, "Docs" other than those that are medical doctors may be presenting.)
Some "docs" have a formal presentation with a PowerPoint presentation, handouts, etc, some don’t. It is solely up to each physician what they want to do for their presentation. ("Docs") generally arrive about 30 minutes after start of program so that they aren’t interrupted with food being served. Their presentation is anywhere from 30 minutes +.
At each of the Dine with a Doc® there is an agency that provides a wellness clinic which consists of blood pressure screenings and/or pulse oximetry, and/or blood glucose monitoring.
