Acid reflux disease – diagnosed usually when a person has heartburn once a week – has been a rising incidence for decades!
“Acid reflux occurs when the junction between the esophagus and the stomach becomes loose, and the stomach contents can regurgitate or reflux back into the esophagus. The esophagus can’t handle the stomach acid, and this leads to irritation and inflammation of the lining of esophagus leading to symptoms of reflux disease. Symptoms can include heartburn regurgitation," Dr. Ayub says.
“The lecture will be about an hour, including 15 minutes or so at the end to answer any questions. I hope people who are having acid reflux issues can attend.”
The lecture will be held in the lower level of Pavilion A in conference rooms 1A & 1B.
Don't forget your mask! Please remember that masks are still required in a hospital setting.
