It’s Time to Listen to Your Gut: A Digestive Health Facebook Live Event Series

News & Events

Bangor, Maine, St. Joseph Healthcare – On July 21, 2022, St. Joseph Healthcare is launching a Facebook Live Series on Digestive Health. Each event will be a question-and-answer format between the moderator and the doctor followed by time for audience questions.

The first Facebook Live event will feature Michael Sighinolfi, MD on the topic of “Colonoscopy and Other Options.” The discussion will include the importance of digestive health screenings and options available to patients.

Upcoming topics will include Myths About Colonoscopies, Understanding Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, and more.

As the saying goes, listen to your gut. But what is the gut saying, and how does it affect daily living?

Here are five common questions:

  • How does gut health impact overall health and wellbeing?
  • What’s the difference between prebiotics and probiotics and how can they help with gut health?
  • What does a colonoscopy or endoscopy procedure have to do with the gut?
  • How can you tell what are occasional gastrointestinal symptoms (gas, bloating, irregular bowel) and when it might be more?
  • What are common digestive health diseases and what are the signs to look for?

Get your questions answered during our Facebook Live Event July 21, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. at
