On Friday, April 14, the Office of Institutional Advancement held its latest session of the The Exam Room — a monthly Facebook Live Q&A that invites the public to submit questions to health care professionals at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso).
In observance of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Awareness Month, this month’s topic was digestive disorders. Richard McCallum, M.D., who specializes in gastroenterology, took questions about a wide range of stomach ailments, including acid reflux, food intolerances, and irritable bowel syndrome. Watch a recap of The Exam Room, below. (Video begins at 02:02.)
The Exam Room was launched in an effort to engage the community with TTUHSC El Paso’s expert health care professionals. Each session of The Exam Room focuses on a different health-related topic and highlights a TTUHSC El Paso health care specialist who is an expert in the field.
