Two upcoming Facebook Live Q&As will invite the community to listen in and pose health questions to physicians at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso).
In honor of American Heart Month, the first session at 3:15 p.m. Friday, Feb. 10 will be hosted by Debabrata Mukherjee, M.D., chair of the Department of Internal Medicine. Dr. Mukherjee, who specializes in cardiovascular medicine, will take questions from viewers about all things heart-related, including heart attack, stroke, coronary artery disease, and heart failure.
Dr. Mukherjee has been named to the Best Doctors in America list for several years, has authored over 500 publications, and has edited more than 14 textbooks on cardiovascular disease.
At 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 13, Karinn Chambers, M.D., director of the Texas Tech Physicians of El Paso (TTP El Paso) Breast Care Center, will hold a Q&A session on breast care. Viewers are invited to ask questions about a wide-range of health issues related to breast health, such as breast cancer and mammograms.
Dr. Chambers is one of only a handful of surgeons in the U.S. who has studied breast surgical oncology. This niche specialty means a surgeon has training and experience in every aspect of breast care: pathology, imaging, biopsy, genetics, radiology, medical oncology, and breast surgery.
The breast care session will feature a special guest appearance by Associate Vice Chancellor Victoria Pineda. She’ll preview the upcoming philanthropic event Bubbles & Brunch, which will help support the TTP El Paso Breast Care Center.
Participants are encouraged to submit their questions in advance and RSVP on TTUHSC El Paso’s event pages:
