Parkland Health Center invites everyone to Coffee With a Doc on Friday from 9 a.m. to10 a.m. at Bauhaus Kaffee.
Dr. Rachel Dickerson, board certified in both internal medicine and pediatrics, will offer a brief presentation titled “When Your Body Fights Itself-Autoimmune Diseases.” Parkland Health Center will pick up the tab for the coffee, and there will be plenty of time for Dr. Dickerson to answer questions.
Autoimmune diseases are more common than you might think. In fact, this topic was requested by our Coffee With a Doc guests. There are dozens of disorders that are categorized as autoimmune diseases such as Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis. Many others are suspected to be autoimmune related.
Originally from Jefferson County, Dr. Dickerson earned her MD from University of Texas Medical Branch and completed her residency at University Hospital and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. She now practices at Medical Arts Clinic at Parkland Health Center.
Parkland Health Center is committed to bringing its patients access to the health and wellness information they need, from the highest quality physicians.
