Free Talk on the Medical Missions of Lou Ingrisano, PA-C

Bar Harbor -

BAR HARBOR, Maine — Lou Ingrisano, PA-C will give a free talk about his medical mission trips throughout the world at 9 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, at the MDI YMCA.
Lou practices family medicine at the MDI Hospital’s Family Health Center 11 months of the year. To round out his schedule and keep his perspective in check Lou spends a month in remote, and often politically unstable, locales such as Darfur, Afghanistan, and Mongolia to provide care and what he says is to “re-learn hands-on medicine.”
In the early 1970s when Lou went to graduate school to become a PA, the field was in its infancy which gave him the opportunity to develop an approach that is hands-on and sensatory – that gets support from technology but isn’t beholden to it. It’s a philosophy that has served him and his patients well for 35 years, first in the emergency department and then in family medicine where he practices today.
The YMCA’s Walks and Talks Program is free and open to the public. After the talk and discussion, participants are free to use the facility, including the indoor pool, fitness room and walking track. For more information, call Suzie James at 288-3511 or email sports@mdiymca.org.
