Shingles: Symptoms, Treatment, and Prevention

A Free Lunch & Learn

 

Shingles (herpes zoster) is caused by the varicella-zoster virus — the same virus that causes chickenpox. After you’ve had chickenpox, the virus lies inactive in nerve tissue near your spinal cord and brain. Years later, the virus may reactivate as shingles.  According to the Center for Disease Control, almost one in three adults in the United States will develop shingles. The Ohio Township Central Library and H.E.L.P. (Healthcare Education Learning Partners) are collaborating for a Lunch & Learn informational program about the symptoms, treatment, and prevention of this painful disease. Nurse Practitioner Jessica MacLeod will be the speaker. This free lunch and informational session takes place on Wednesday, October 9 at 12:00 p.m. in the Diamond Room at the Ohio Township Central Library in Newburgh.
