Programs Explore Healthy Skin/Medical Theft

(MINOT, ND)—The Trinity Health Community Education Department will offer a pair of community education programs next week.

On Tuesday, April 27, Dr. William Kivett will present “Effect of Diet on Skin and Hands” at 7 p.m. in the north end of Town & Country Center. A specialist in Dermatology, Plastic Surgery and Hand Surgery, Dr. Kivett will focus on how nutrition, especially a starchy and sugary carbohydrate diet with a high glycemic index, can adversely affect skin, hands and other organs.

On Thursday, April 29, Debi Nelson, director of Health Information Management at Trinity Hospitals, will offer a program on medical identity theft at 7 p.m. in the Education Center of Health Center-Riverside. Medical identify theft occurs when someone uses another person’s identity to purchase medical services or drugs, resulting in fraudulent insurance claims and erroneous information entering the victim’s medical chart.
